Arrived yesterday in beautiful Cesky Krumlov.  This places reminds me of Whistler, so much character, nature, and outdoorsie-type things to do.  It is gorgeous here.  Narrow Cobble stone streets make it difficult for cars to get around here.  Perfect for strolling the shops, goodies, and nature.  I hiked a wee bit yesterday and went to the ballet.  Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet."  It was very good!  An outdoor theatre with a revolving seating area made for quite the artistic experience!  I really enjoyed it, except the thunder and the lightening prevented the show from finishing, which I was very disappointed in.  I'm amazed at how cheap shows are here.  You can get into professional level events for under $30.  The food is also affordable, and very good.  The weather on the other hand, has been quite random.  Afternoons have been beautiful, but the evenings have brought thunder and lightening.  The weirdest part about it, is the storms have lasted minutes, and then the sun reappears.  Strange indeed, especially three days in a row.

I took an inner tube down the river today.  Lots of fun!  The slow, winding waterway made for a wonderful platform to enjoy the breathtaking landscapes, scenery, and life here.  The weather cleared the further I traveled, making for an overall beautiful day here.  At the end of my ride I was a wee bit confused though, where do I leave my raft?  I got off at the right area, since it was marked, but everyone I asked seem to not know where I should leave my raft.  Calling the company didn't help my situation, I was still confused!  Luckily, there was a czech family that followed with a raft a few minutes after me and they left their boat by the side of the river, so I did too.  Who knows what happened next!  Wish I could have taken some photos, but my camera would have gotten soaked.  And if that's the case, then I wouldn't be able to take any photos after my river ride. 

One more night in Cesky Krumlov before I head to Slovakia.  Have met some great people so far, alot of Brazilians and French.  And Americans.  Americans...And a group of four Australians that got into the hostel late last night, and were very excited about the wifi after camping for three or four days.  They were all glued to their phones!
