Today - Sunday - is my last day in Lechovo. It was a long day. Church began at 7:15 a.m. and finished at 10:45 a.m. I'll spare you the details. Suffice to know that my role during the Divine Liturgy was maximized as the rubrics permitted.
After another wonderful lunch and needed nap, I was given a private tour of Lechovo’s museum by the mayor and vice-regent of the "county." It’s a collection of local artifacts ...

... The salad plate was huge, eating perhaps two thirds of it. Chrome Dome complained at one point on the Albania trip Daniela told him if he was late he would be left behind. He took it as if she meant it! He said it was an issue if people were 20M late. I suggested 5M late was an issue on a group trip.
The chicken soup was nice. The main was like a beef cutlet with mushrooms in a strong sauce. The dessert was a fudge with nuts with a heavy, icky chocolate ...
