June 7, 2009: Free day

Today was an off day from the field for us to explore more cultural activites. We started with an old castle near the Polish border. It has been renovated many times over the centuries, and our tourguide showed us how it has changed, including the furnishings in each room. From there we went to Liberec and went to the Natural History Museum and the Botanical Gardens. It was a pleasant way to spend the day. For dinner we had fried cheese and potatoes, which I have learned is becoming a popular dish in The Czech Republic. I missed Cathy’s presentation of a previous Earthwatch expedition that she did because of a toothache that I am suffering.
