Molly and I went day tripping to Olomouc from Ostrava in the Czech Republic. The beautiful university town has lots of cobblestone streets, and a gorgeous town square. One apt description might be a smaller less expensive version of Prague with much less traffic … a major plus in my book!
During our walk around town Molly has learned to put up with my checking out every stream and river, and my need to look down from every Stone Bridge into the waters below. My explorations were rewarded when I discovered a gorgeous Mandarin Duck. This bird is rare for Europe, and would be an unheard of sight back in Minnesota.
