Snow at the border








We passed over the Czech Republic border and what a welcome change from the old Communist days. We didn't have to produce our passports and there was no close scrutiny of our luggage or the bus. And, to top it off, there was snow at the border.

We stopped for lunch at Pilsen, a non tourist town, but famous for its Pilsner Urquill Beer. Here were more Christmas Markets (our fifth market), but so different to the German ones, with more focus on handcrafted items. The food stalls seemed to contain a lot of blood sausage but the main attraction was the Trdelnik, which comprised rolled pastry rolled around a stick, heated over coals and then rolled in cinnamon sugar - cinnamon toast in a hollow roll, a tasty treat.
