Most of the group decided to head to Budapest for the three day weekend, but there were 6 of us that decided to stay back and just experience Olomouc on Easter. The Saturday before Easter, Caleb, Tara, Tim and I headed back to Brno for a short day trip. Tara and I had seen a great Bohemia crystal shop the weekend before but it was closed so we wanted to go back. We have a couple of stores in Olomouc, but the prices at this store were amazing so we had to check it out. Found a couple of gifts to take back home with me but am thinking I need to pack it up somehow and send them ahead of me. Headed back home and we were in Olomouc by mid afternoon. We had talked to Dr Clark previously and were going to get together that night to play cards and drink some Moravian wine. We went over to his faculty hostel where he is staying and had a great time until after midnight. We decided to meet for Easter breakfast at a cafe across from the church where we were going for Easter mass. St Moritz is one of the oldest Churchs in Moravia and also has one of the largest organs. There was also an orchestra and choir in the balcony with the organ and they even sang the Alleluia song. I acutally got chills down my spine. Its hard to put into words the experience of being in a church that old for an Easter service. Humbling? Inspiring? still not sure those are the right words. The five that went to church (Tara, Alyshia, Katie, Caleb and myself) decided to cook Dr. Clark an Easter dinner since he had a kitchen at his disposal. So off to our favorite grocery store (Globus) to buy a ham, pototoes and other fixins. We ended up with a pretty good meal and we had even bought one of their traditional Easter breads that has raisins and almonds and had that for dessert. It will be an Easter I won't soon forget. Ready for our next big adventure (Vienna and Venice!!!)
