...are very hot and dry, such crazy weather, not a drop of rain for weeks now. Of course autumn is coming, the leaves are colouring and there are lots and lots of berries everywhere ( our ancestors used to say that the more the berries, the more severe winter).
I am still struggling with a notebook and it looks like I am going to say good-bye to my old PC. I will see on Tuesday. Well, not a good timing at all. I have already arranged a firm to come and change my terrible old linoleum in the hall. It is so expensive! but it was such a shame. And more money needed now? But I need a PC ...
Yesterday I spent walking with a group of my friends. We walked only 13 km but the sun was like a laser, it was so hot and we had little chance to find some cover, only here and there in the forest. We visited a long abandoned and forbidden area that used to serve only to military puropses during the communist regime. We expected to find some tourist paths, or paths for bikers - but no, the area is still mostly closed because the army hires the area to other (foriegn) armies and so there is actually almost no change. We could still see some places that used to be forbidden. Ah, what a waste! Empty vilages, ruins of houses and....and a sad ruin of the oldest sacral structure in the South of Bohemia: Military forces in 50s, 60s and 70s used it as a target...it was a little church in early Gothic with Romanesque features...now they try to save it but they try very slowly and it is not enough. I still feel very outraged - I blame the old regime but also great ignorance of present powers-to-be who are only interested in oncoming elections and TALK and PROMISE only. Blah-blah-blah.
Well, I took some pictures but you will see them (hopefully) later. In the meantime I have this link with pictures:http://www.ckrumlov.info/docs/cz/atr15.xml#
After the trip, we were all so tired, hot and thirsty - we stopped in a restaurant in one small town and had a great time with good meals and some drinks. We returned in two cars to the big town where I left my car ( driving in that area would have killed me and I would have been a burden for my companions who are all good drivers). I got home after 6 pm., totally knackered but Rocky was waiting for me and our regular walk...oh dear, I could barely move!
I also did some cleaning and then I had no energy to even open it here...
Today it was much better...at least I tried to comment as much as possible.
I wish you all a good week!:-)
