Prague 2008: Part 1

I took a LOT of photos this one is the "Cesky Krumlov 2008" album), so this will be broken up into a few posts & albums on Shutterfly. First up is my weekend trip to Cesky Krumlov. It's a town that looks like it's still in the Renaissance. This comes in handy during their annual Renaissance Festival, The Festival of The Five-Petaled Rose. It's the town symbol and refers to a king using it as a symbol to represent his 4 legitimate kids and one bastard (sorry, Mom, but that's what the bastard was -- a bastard). Anyway, it's the 2nd biggest tourist spot in the Czech Republic for a reason. Pretty town, a castle, lots of hiking, biking & water sports in the area -- pretty much everything a Drunken Lemur could want (yes, I'm still bitter about the reunion falling through -- I blame Satan).

I spent Saturday walking through the town and Sunday biking through the surrounding hills. It was perfect weather -- painfully sunny and in the low 80s or high 70s (suck it, Dallasites).

And to top it all off -- they had good cheap beer and a mountain of MEAT.
