Cesky Krumlov

Standing by the heater is becoming somewhat of a pastime:

We weren't sure we'd get served dinner at 10pm in a town that looked asleep, but the Gypsy was open (though empty) and made us goulash and fried cheese:

This morning we enjoyed a fine breakfast of cheese, ham, more cheese, cream yogurt, two kinds of bread, butter and jam--included with and delivered to our room.

Then we went for a stroll, and encountered some bears:

They seemed to be guarding the castle. In as much as a castle on a hillside can have a moat, that's where these bears were.

Here's the painted tower from yesterday, up close:

And more murals further into the chateau:

And a fine view down on the city:

We hiked onward into the hills, enjoying the fresh air and quiet. I thought this shot came out rather surreal:

(That was it--our minute of sun.)

The chateau has this nifty sundial on the wall (sun not included):

(I wonder why they marked the hours twice instead of marking months?)

Anyway, this is our home for the next week. Time to get some work done.
