The drive to the Czech Republic is about 10 hours. You can see on the map how we got there. We left Ringe at 12:30 am on Saturday morning. I ended up sleeping most of the way.. so I can't tell you what everyone else did.. hah. At one point we made a pit stop to use the toilet. I swear- it was an insane experience for me. First of all, we had to PAY to use the toilet!! Then.. i was looking at the toilet for like 5 minutes trying to figure out how I was supposed to flush it.. (sorry.. no pictures!) but I did discover that it was like a hand motion sensor. Right, ok then the toilet made this weird sound.. and this thing came out of the toilet seat and the seat started to spin! like to clean it! I was just standing there gapping, mouth-open STARING at the toilet. I washed my hands and got out of there. It was actually less amazing the next few times I used this weird toilet..
We arrived in Úštěk, the town where we lived, at about 9:30 am. We checked into our hotel and went to Litoměřice to walk around and look in shops. Then we went to this underground really cool restaurant in Litoměřice for dinner.
these pictures are of me and kyla signing the restaurant's book..
We saw the Town Square, which awed me just at how OLD it is! "The Old Town Square is one of two main squares in the city centre. With its ancient buildings and magnificent churches, this is one of the most beautiful historical sights in Europe. Dating back to the late 12th century, the Old Town Square started life as the central marketplace for Prague. Over the next few centuries, many buildings of Romanesque, Baroque and Gothic styles were erected around the market, each bringing with them stories of wealthy merchants and intrigue." It is just SO cool and i'm lucky that we got to see it in the day AND at night, when everything is lit up! (read more at ttp://www.pragueexperience.com/places.asp?PlaceID=594)
