I remember back around 1994 or so, tainted paprika was a big story, one I thought was depressing as it was such a stupid topic to get Hungary in the news when the country was still then struggling with its politics and economy, which seemed like a much more pertinent story to me. What goes around comes around: paprika is back in the news again.

Then it was flour painted red; now it's mold (Reuters | Pestiside). Not sure which is worse. Hope it blows over soon and doesn't do too much damage to aggriculture and dining in the meantime. Paprika off the shelves! I can't imagine how restaurants are dealing with this blow.

Dear Sir / madam,

I found your details on your website, I hope you might be able to help me with my strange request!

I am a Producer working on a television show called House Hunters International in New York which follows English speaking expats in their quest to purchase a house abroad. I am hoping to find an English speaking expat to profile who has moved to and bought property in Prague within the last few years. I wonder if you or anyone you know might be interested in getting involved?! Please find a little blurb about the show below:

House Hunters International is a half-hour program currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV). The program is a spin-off of the popular House Hunters and has spent the last several seasons exploring the idiosyncrasies of buying real estate in other countries. HHI is about a personal journey of discovery and the making of life-long dreams.

The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying process by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where buyers and their real estate agents tour 3 homes. At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different. A great deal of effort will be made to capture rich visuals and to provide sequences where viewers will be exposed to local vistas, traditions, lifestyles and architecture.

Please get in touch if you have any more questions about the show. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes and many thanks,
