Took off this morning for a train to Cesky Krumlov, a small town in the south of the Czech Republic. Our travel book listed it as one of the top 25 destinations in Eastern Europe. The train wasn't up to Linda's standard after our previous one. Local rail lines our a bit dumpy and this one was no exception. The train line was broken half way there so everyone had to take buses to another town. The next train was even dumpier than the first one, and got us to where we had to transfer to the third, you guessed it, dumpiest train of all. Luckily, it was free because most of the people who our supposed to stamp our railpass just look at it like it is a foreign object and give it back to us. It should have been used up a long time ago, but we have got quite a few free rides on trains. Getting into town we decided to forgo the taxi and hoof it to our apartment. Thought we were lost but just hadn't walked far enough. Our place is quite nice and close to everything. It also is in a different place as it is situated above a gift shop. After hours you have to open and lock the shop to get to your room. Had a less than spectacular meal, it seems Cesky Krumlov doesn't have lots of choice for food. Maybe tomorrow we'll find a hidden gem to eat at.
