A crocodile in the fountain

The kids were fascinated by the fountain on the square. There hasn’t been a day when they didn’t splash around in it. And wouldn’t you know it – one of them dropped a toy in it. A little plastic crocodile that was a prize possession. Today’s mission was clear: rescue the crocodile from the fountain. […]

We’re celebrating

In the morning we went to invite Věra and her family over for an afternoon celebration. There were several people celebrating, so it looked like good party. On Široká, we cooled off with refreshments and watched Věra prepare the cake. The kids helped out gladly. All day it looked like it might rain, so we […]

Latrán Street is no longer a “quiet” pedestrian zone with the occasional passing automobile – it’s become a busy throughway with an unprecedented number of people passing by chaotically. Bus companies pass by one after another, and deliveries are […]

Day Two, Sunday

The sun woke us with its rays in the morning, the birds were singing, and the sound of bells carried through town. The view from the window over Krumlov is beautiful, rain or shine.… Simply idyllic. Our morning today looked similar to the one on Saturday: reading a book on the square, with child sleeping. […]
