We were greeted by lots of animals and quite a lovely colored picturesque Saxon village...nicely maintained houses, one after the other. The ladies of the village got together and decided to create the "Sock Project" in order to provide income to the village and allow people to stay in the village and make a living. They had knit socks and hats (I bought one!) and other items. We went into a store and also bought from some of the women who had set up tables outside with their wares.
We walked up the rough cobblestone/rock pathway to the church and explored the 13th Century structures and museum before heading back down to the town for dinner at a local couple's home. We had way too much food...bread, soup, cabbage meat rolls, home made sour cherry alcohol, home made wine, our leftover bulls blood wine and a mean drinking liquor! At one point during dinner, we ran out to take a picture of all of the animals coming in from the fields...cows, horses, etc wandering down the main stretch each going into their proper homes. We also saw cute little piggies driving their noses into the mud and shaking their curly tails...roosters, chickens, turkeys, kitties, dogs......
We drove back after dinner, the road just as rough as earlier and went to sleep back at our hostel...
