July 11: A Taste of Czech Republic



Today's blogger: Marta Herrero Blanco

At last we have reached Bedrichov. Yesterday we met all together for the first time in Prague and we enjoyed a lovely Czech dinner and concert. The Mezzosoprano  was really good! It was great to enjoy the Czech food and this event was organized by Professor Josef Krecek.  Today, we took the minibus at 12:00pm and went via Boleslav for more traditional Czech meals, including the ever-popular Beef Goulash  P7110060  and a fresh dumpling recipe. Svetlana and Belen both said their Goulash was reflective of the culture of the Czech Republic. On our way we visited Hrad Frydstejn castle, built in 1385, and used to protect the village. It was abandoned in 1540. Now it belongs to the village and it is slowly being partly restored. This was explained to us by our kind host Josef Krecek. Should we mention the weather?! It is a sunny and hot 33C today with no breeze. Litres of water consumed - probably 20! This is okay for the Aussies (Australians), but the others are "cooked"! We arrived at Bedrichov at 16:30pm to very beautiful and comfortable accommodations. We're also looking forward to dinner in the village followed by the World Cup final. Our two Spanish guests are predicting a Spanish victory!
