    "Wanted, English speaking person as local
tourguides" Accomadations, meals provided and small salary. Inquire at
the city center information office." You know, I just haven't seen
enough of Europe yet, so I passed on it.



    Visited the first and original "Budweiser factory"
in Budvor, about 30 kilometers from here. For any of you familiar with
the legal battle going on with Anheuser Bush, Heres a little info for
you.
    Budweiser in Budvor has been brewed since
1258. Let's see, 1492...  Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Anyway,
A German named Budwiesz, A decedent of the family, immigrated to
America, and began brewing both Budweiser and Pilsner. This got him
eventually into court where he had to discontinue brewing Pilsner. He
was however able to prove, that he was brewing Budweiser, in the exact
same method as his ancestors at the original brewery in Budvor. So as
it stands now, it is still in the courts, as long as Anheuser Bush can
continue with the brewing as long as they do not change the method of
brewing.

    Last night Pete, A Canadian, I meet
the night before and I had  dinner at "Papa's Living Restaurant,"
not sure what the living means, and each ate  700 grams of ribs.
Sides included for under ten bucks. So next searching for a place to
wash it all down,  we searched for a pub.

   
The "Horor Bar," yes on the spelling, is down in a moist cool dungeon
with winding corridors complete with, whips, chains,  skeletons,
bats and even a casket, and behind the bar was a bartender resembling
"Lily Munster." Great atmosphere, good music, with I swear sounds of
bats flying around in the background.

    We did
however, pass, on drinking the Absinth, as we witnessed some of the
effects on some of those who where trying it, and soon after, seemed to
be swatting at bats.  I think I am going to try  without the
beer warmup, as the beer seems to intensify the effect.
