Today I went to the Czech town of Cesky Krumlov. It takes a few hours to get there, but we thought that the ride wouldn't be bad because we would get to view the Czech countryside. The drive wasn't too bad, I actually fell asleep on the way there and the way back. However, the view looked like some of the drive from my house to NH, with some trees but minus the view off 89. Another part of the drive was huge open fields and what looked like giant farms but we only saw a few animals. Randomly in the middle of the fields there were housing developments with nothing else around them. I think this is a town like Godric's Hollow, since it is separated from everything. Once we got to the town we looked at a huge castle which was actually closed for tours but we were able to walk around and see the outside. Then we walked around the town and had lunch in a cafe. The town was really pretty but many things were closed since its not really tourist season. After lunch we went to two museums, one was a photographers studio and was really interesting because there were many pictures that were taken before communism and then restored after. The second museum was supposed to be about architecture but was more of a lecture about it. It was pretty boring. After the museum we had some more time to walk around and then Joanna and I were cold so we sat in a cafe. We then got on the bus to come back and everyone fell asleep. Tonight we decided to just stay in the dorm and hang out since were all so tired. Tomorrow I am going to Kutna Hora.
