Day 6 and 7 - Cesky Krumlov

Hi there - we're now in Cesky Krumlov. I am writing this at an internet cafe where we're charged by the minute, so I'll be short and brief. We bussed it to Cesky Krumlov yesterday from Prague and it was about a 3.5 hr ride. We had off and on rain, but overall it wasn't too bad. The town is an adorable small town with cobblestoned streets and that medieval charm. When we got to our Pension, we were amazed by how big the room was! It's pretty modern with the Ikea type furniture flair - all in all very cute. We didn't notice til this morning that our baseboard was somewhat graffitied with an inappropriate picture of a man and a woman. Oh well - part of the charm I guess. Everything else was pretty tasteful. Our room overlooks the river that runs thru the town like an "s". We were able to walk the entire town last night - saw the castle, complete with a bear pit, and walked through some shops, pubs, and cafes. Today, we're doing the guided tour so we know more about what we're looking at. We're also planning to canoe the river - hope it doesn't rain on us! Anyway, gotta cut it short for now. We're off to Vienna tomorrow, but now gonna get our day on here in Krumlov. Ciao!
