Today we entered Czechoslovakia, our penultimate new country of the trip. When we left this morning, we saw that the weather forecast for rain was really coming true and it was coming down pretty hard. After we packed our car we put on our coats and went over to look at the stores to spend the rest of our Polish currency. We bought food for lunch at the grocery store, as well as bread and treats at the bakery. Mom gave Hannah and I the leftover change to buy ourselves snacks for the road trip.

After we had spent all that we could we climbed into the car and started our journey over the border. We stopped at a gas station for our lunch of sandwiches and pizza, and we bought a toll sticker for our windshield.

We found our place quite easily and we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful host. We are staying at this house for three nights, but we are staying the country of Czechoslovakia for a week total. We are staying in a suite of a house, which has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen and a living room. Everything is very spacious and clean, which is really nice too.

Last night we watched the Avengers for a change from our usual West Wing. Tomorrow we plan to take a rafting trip down the river in town and maybe even go for some mini golf.

Hello dear Family,

It always amazes me to read about all the interesting highlights of your trip. You sure are experts and know how to take care of things, of each other and take home many precious memories.
Welcome to your last new country. I am curious to read about your impressions of Prague. I know our daughters and son-in-law loved this city and would have liked to spend more time there.

Many thanks once again for sharing your adventures with us folks left behind in sunny Victoria!
