... made it in time.
... you wander around a series of displays depicting life in communist Czech Republic. After visiting an interrogation room guests sit and watch a movie with footage of the 1968 protests and the Velvet Revolution of 1989. It was very moving footage. The video also touches on agriculture under the Russians, and the fact that they added so much poison the food that life spans dramatically dropped.
After lunch we walked back ...
... to store and transport beer, refrigeration for houses, and fresh water. They were cool and moist, and I’m glad we had a guide with us or we most definitely would have got lost! The poor guide, even in Czech, you could tell she was nervous, and we learned at the end of the tour that it had been her very first tour being the guide on her own!
We had yet more rain in Pilsen, but found a restaurant close to the hotel. ...
... Currently in a town in the Czech republic called Pilzen. Arrived at 6.30 pm after a total of 420 miles on the road, pretty much most of it in the rain.
Highlight of the day was watching some guy trying to kick start a Harley at a petrol station....I'd have told him where he was going wrong but he was bigger than me.....he'd never have cought me on the bike though.....
... Little did we know he had a few special rooms for us to see. One was the “black kitchen”. So named because it was covered in soot from cooking over the hot flames in the room.
We were grateful for his time and expertise but even more impressed with his kind demeanor and easy smile. He was a gracious and accomplished man and one of the many fine rotarians that we can be happy to know during this GSE.
