comment Is there an EU law that a hotel can't kick you out if you're sick?
There is no such a thing as EU law. There are EU directives, which should be taken in account by member countries in their local laws. Although I doubt that directive covering this particular case would exist. EU directives usually are very broad and generic.

comment Required vaccinations for Eastern Europe
Worth mentioning, that for example TBE is only relevant if you're going to countryside or forests. Not relevant if you only planning to do sightseeing in cities.

comment Are anti-influenza drugs containing pseudoephedrine legal in Georgia?
btw. pseudoephedrine is not "anti-influenza" drug, it's a decongestant used in treatment for common cold and most in anti-allergic medicines. And unless you're planning to pack 100 packages, it won't even look remotely suspicious.

comment Visa-friendly country for an international conference?
Just look at the map. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Schengen_visa_requirements.png Vast majority of the World needs visa to enter Schengen area even for short stay. And it's by far not a trivial task.

comment Is it normal to have something added to the bill in a restaurant in Italy?
@BrendanMcK: In Europe you have for example on-line stores. According to EU rules, they have charge tax according to the taxes in client's country. And they do. They detect where you from and display the final price, you're actually going to pay. Because displaying anything but the final price is a rip-off.

comment What's the value of the “genocide” and similar questions on the US customs form I-94?
@hippietrail: this means, they don't need any additional reason to deport her, besides providing false information in visa application. Which wouldn't be possible, if there was no such a question.
