At 0800 we boarded a bus and drove 2 1/2 hours to Cesky Krumluv. It was a beautiful drive, which reminded me of the greenery and rolling hills of Kentucky. Our purple eyeshadow guide guided us through this very small, beautiful town, where a river winds through the middle of it. We took a lot of pictures, especially of the castle, which was fun to tour around and to see it from all angles. There are 3 bears that guard the castle, however we only got a quick glance of one of them.
Funnies for the day:
*I paid 6 crowns to use the water closet. I decided I'd take full advantage of it, until of course the light went off, which I figured meant my time was up.
*When out to dinner you have to ask for tap water around here and sometimes they don't even serve it. However when I asked for tap water tonight at dinner the waitress wrinkled her nose, rolled her eyes and said of course.
*The Jewish center of town is closed from Sun Up to Sun Down Friday night to Saturday night. We went down there tonight and every thing was closed and the roads were very quiet.
*When a statue of a horseman has only 2 feet on the ground it means he was assassinated, 1 foot up means he died in battle and all four on the ground means he died in bed; likely from an illness or injury.
