Brno is the 2nd largest city in Czech Republic with about 250,000 people. Today we will take a tour of the city.
In case you are wondering why I have posted pictures of plants . . . The abbey was where Gregor Mendel (who was an abbot) did his work with plants and genetics. These are pictures of the garden where he actually planted his peas which he studied. There is a Mendel Museum attached to the Abbey. There were not photos allowed in the basilica.
Group dynamics are really starting to take shape. There are some definite personality conflicts on the horizon. Arrive at the hotel to find some rooms had only one king bed and some had to share, others had two twins, and then there were 2 extra single rooms. Wow, did this cause an issue. Well, today we (my roommate and I got moved into a two bed room). The next three weeks should be interesing. i'm still just going with the flow and have tried not to annoy anyone too much -- avoiding the cliques, etc. We will see how much longer i can be "nice".
