From here we went about 10 miles to The Ossuary in Sedlec. The photos will tell the entire story. Actually, if you are interested -- when the chapel ws built in the 14th century the bones from an ossuary where piled up and later removed to the bottom part of the chapel. in 151l a half-blind monk pilled the bons into pyramids. In 1661 the bone decorations were reagrranged and placed in a new design. During the 1700's A guy named Santini created these lovely decorations. There are the bones of over 40,000 people used to decorate the Sedlec Ossuary. Rather spooky.
Tomorrow going on another short trip out of Prague to a castle.
This time next week, I will be almost home. The time has really flown by.
