The people in small town Czech Republic are not rich. The two towns I visit may not be good representations of how all are in the Czech Republic, but they are poor and not well kept. The people seem to be less healthy as well, lots of smoking and many amputees roaming the streets. A very sad picture indeed. Buildings are falling apart and a ghost town atmosphere seems to be in the air. Bringing with this, though, is less tourists, which is very nice. Less frequented and much more space to explore. You don't have to wait to be served for an ice cream like you do in Prague where people are packed into a small quarter and do silly things like stop and then turn quickly to the side, making walking the Charles Bridge during the day a little like running a race.
Also, strangely enough, I have had two train rides in the past couple with couples who match. On the train ride to Kutna Hora there was a young couple who were wearing the same shoes, the next day, different train, a middle aged couple were wearing the same shirt...WHAT'S GOING ON?!?!?!
Not in the Czech Republic for too much longer, will post again tonight after I have a little more experience in Czesky Krumlov.
