Where I stayed
Anyway, we're only in Kłodzko for the night on our way to Prague. The town has a very violent history. At various times it's been part of various German states such as Bohemia and Prussia and has been fought over for 1000 years.
There's an excellent large display in town done by the local school in four languages. Wikipedia has a good brief summary.
The Gestapo were running the town during WWII and you can imagine how that went
We saw in a servo shop today the motor oil and coolant are rated to - 37 degrees C. I can't even imagine how cold that is. However we're now in our 2nd week of continous hot sunny days and warm nights. Very similar to Adelaide in summer.
Check out the bit of Polish TV we recorded on the video below. They overdub foreign programs using one voice only. It's the same on every channel. It must make comedies fall pretty flat. The intonation is deadpan, and it's a bloke no matter who's on screen.
We've checked into a cheap hotel on the edge of town. $AU 60 a night brekky included. It's pretty good value. It's actually about what it cost us for a cabin in Spain. We got similar brilliant value at the Hotel Ibis in Czestochowa. There's a big wedding reception on in the restaurant dining room here. Some of the guests are going to peak early, it's pretty obvious. Dancing and shouting while spilling their drinks at only 5 pm...it's not going to end well.
We hope to hit Prague early afternoon tomorrow. We'll be there a couple of days.
