On Friday April 27, we traveled to Ostrava and met a former study abroad student, Ross, who now lives there. A few of us headed back to Olomouc after a tour of the city hall, observation tower and a visit to the Harley Davidson business that Ross is manager of.
May 1 or May Day is a national holiday in the Czech Republic. Called Labor Day, it is a national holiday for workers, but it is also associated with an ancient pagan ritual of celebrating spring. Our group travel to Rosnav pad Rodhostem, which was about an 1 1/2 hour train trip from Olomouc. It is basically a living history museum and some of us compared it to Pioneer Village in Minden or the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island. They even had a May Pole raising and dance with traditional clothing and songs. I have always liked history and discovering how people lived and worked in earlier times, so I enjoyed it immensely.
On May 4th we leave for Krakow Poland and Auschwitz.
