- Hi Members,Attached are two more photos taken June 5th in Zelechovice, CZ. Our guide for the day, Janna from Hotel Mylen in Velhrad, Moravia, CZ. took off walking to find the Municipal building. Not wanting to hold her back, my two cousins and I waited for her.... :-) Czechs walk with a large stride, and it is difficult for heavy weight (read fat!) fellow to keep up with them!We took the opportunity to visit a small grocery store across the street and purchase some bottled water. I found a liter bottle, near our quarts, and proud to find it was so cold part of the water had frozen. One of the girls suggested I get another bottle that was not frozen. We neither spoke the other's language, and her taking it from me and handing me another bottle, with the ice, wasn't what I was wanting. I put it back, and get the one with ice again, and smiled at her. She started to get it again, but Ugh Uh, this was what I wanted. When I went to pay for the bottled, I paid as I normally did - held out a handful of change and "take what you need" look on my face. The girl laughed, as was the other girl by this time, and ask if I really wanted the bottled water with ice. She said the other girl had placed it in the ice cream freezer for herself! I was a little embarrassed and started taking it back to her, but she would have not part of accepting it. The girl speaking English said the girl "got a big 'Bang', as we called it, over the instance. Had the girl tell her, in CZ, to put another bottle in the freezer, cause I hope to be back in a year or two. We all laughed and for some reason, they had figured we were Americans!!! I thought I made a picture of the store, but haven't came across it. The store reminded me of the residential area grocery store I worked in about 1943 and 44 - small, selling mainly foot, maybe having some Bayer Aspirin and BC Power for my Mother's migraines!Once photo is view of the downtown of Zelechovice, which you will notice the narrow streets, and not a large town. The second photo is the Zelechovice Catholic Church, across from the store we has been in. Majority of the towns and villages churches were on the high ground of the town, with high steeples, and if a newer church, as this one was, painted. The centuries old churches usually were of large blocks and left in their natural state.Next will be Zadverice, CZ.Sir John, Earl of Berkshire
