. He had some good stories to tell us. The place he told us to get food was great. It was traditional Czech food. It was really good. Probably my favorite meal of the trip, right up there with the raw sausage sandwich in Florence. This was labeled as "Spicy mix between two potato pancakes." It was really, really good. Tonight we made our first dinner of the trip. We bought some sausages, kraut, ketchup, mustard, and bread, roasted em up in the little kitchen next to our room and ate up. Relly quite good. This town is great from what we've seen. Like a mini version of Prague really, without nearly as many tourists. A huge church looks over the city from the center, and one side is completely made up of a castle. We were planning on just one night here, but will probably spend one more, then back to prague and saturday we fly to London. It's all drawing to a close. The closer it gets the shorter it seems like we've been here. A little past the half way mark I started looking forward to getting back to normal life. Maybe that's because we were sleeping under trees and bums. But now it seems like we haven't been here long enough, and we still have so much to see. Another time I guess. China next summer. Sorry, no pictures, this computer at the hostel is ancient. If anyone has an requests for an item from Europe, let me know.
No longer in Prague. We took a train ride from Prague to Krumlov, a small town south of Prague, close to the border. This is a great place. After the 5 hour train ride that we expected to be 2 or 3, we got our first taxi of the trip to our hostel - Havana Hostel. This is by far the most comfortable place we've stayed at, and the cheapest. It is run by an old couple, and has a cabin feel to it. Our room is on the top floor. Apparently we are sharing with a few asian girls that our stuck up, at least that's what we gathered from the owner when he pushed his nose up with his finger, telling us we are staying with some chinese folk. Haven't met them yet. There is a little fire pit in the backyard. Unforunately we can't use it unless the owner man is here, and he is currently across the river at the Green House drinking. We would be too if we drank. We went to church this past Sunday in Prague. Met a really unique retired American. He's been living here for 10 years I think. After church he drove us around Prague, showing us some cheap places to eat
