This is the stuff that group emails are all about...

Subject: You'll never beleive what i saw today....


This town is about 60km East of Prague so we made it an easy day trip.
There is a church there which in 1870 was looking a little tiresome so the family who owned the town needed to give it a little interior design job.

The church was a burial site for wealthy people around the area and as more people died they had to dig up the old bones and bury new ones. So around this church laid the bones of over 40,000 people.

So the family employed a local woodworker to decorate the church and said, "we not to interested in buying the wood, so do you reakon you can usae these bones?"

....so the bones were used and the church was decorated.

Czech out the photos (pardon the pun)....
