1st Day of the Study Tour
Aug 28, 2000
Left Prague to go see the eastern part of the Cezch Republic. Drove to Telc, which was cool because it was a town surrounded by lakes. Got to go up into the tower of the castle. The wooden stairs were quite rickity and the low ceilings made for an interesting clime. The view was worth it. I could see all 3 lakes and got a picture of mom on the ground. She looks like an ant. Toured the castle but could only understand half of what the guide was saying. I got the important suff so no worries. The square was neat bcause it had a mixture of building styles. We got a tour of a family farm where the owner was doing really progressive work. Ended the night at a wine cellar/hostel. I was not to excited about the wine tasting. I only sipped like 2 of Mom's samples and the all tasted the same. Not bad just like wine. Unfortunately I got sick soon after and did not get to see everybody start polk dancing after dinner, but that was the only negative part of my day.
