We arrived in the Cesky Krumlov after a long day of bus travel. Cesky Krumlov is famous among backpackers as being one of the best looking towns in Europe similar to a small Prague. It is a really cool medieval city with a fairy tale castle over looking the cobblestone streets and a river that runs right through the middle of it all. We got in last night without a place to stay but we heard about a good hostel and checked to see if they had anything available. They not only had space but they ended up giving us our own private room with a private bathroom for only 13 dollars per person per night. The one downfall is that the bathroom has a strong cabbage stench emanating from somewhere around the shower but not much you can do about that.

We went out for a good meal for cheap(just the usual story again, eat and drink like kings for 10 bucks) and then spent the night at the bar in the bottom floor of the hostel. Ryan was still a little weak from the flu and called it an early night while Monte, Tyler, and I spent the evening chatting up some cute Czech girls. I even sprung for a round of drinks for the table which set me back a whole 150 crowns(let me see, 7 drinks for about 5 bucks).

Today we are up early to explore the town and eat the famous hostel breakfast(a full English breakfast for 2 bucks) and then probably lounge around for the rest of the day. I'll update more if anything else of interest happens before we leave for the town of Plzen, the home of Pilsner beer.

Day 2
We spent yesterday exploring the town, checking out the castle , and avoiding the rain. We haven't gotten much bad weather recently on our trip but yesterday was one of those days. Luckily we got to check out most of what the town had to offer before the weather really turned bad. Last night was spent catching a movie(Silent Hill was possibly not the best use of our time) and then hanging out with some Czechs at the hostel bar. One interesting thing of note at the hostel bar is that they allow dogs and everyone takes them up on that offer. They must have had 15 dogs cruising around the bar/restaurant and even the waiter had his dog following him around. That is something that just wouldn't fly in the good old USA. Today we are just going to hang out here and then head off to Plzen tomorrow.
