We are in the village of Zasova. It's actually bigger than a village, with about two thousand people. But it feels like a village because of it's narrow, long layout.
Walked five minutes down to the nearest shop and picked up some things. Bought some excellent smoked ham sandwich meat. Fortunately they had one girl working who spoke a tiny amount of English because it sure would have been fun trying to say "Can I have 300 grams of the smoked ham, sliced please?" in Czech. We might have got the "please" part correct!
And, they have the best yogurt here in Czech Republic! You know, those little containers with the fruit on the bottom? Thick and creamy...best yogurt ever! And only about 45 cents each. Have a look at our facebook page where we posted our full grocery bill.
Then, we caught up on some internet time and had some lunch.
Our couchsurfing host Blanka has a cute little dog named Miky. Blanka was off to work yesterday and she had said we were more than welcome to take Miky on a walk with us so that's what we did!

We hiked through the village and found a trail that leads up a ridge. Once we got up there, the pine trees were fairly thick and it was hard to find a view. Felt like we could have been hiking anywhere in British Columbia, the trees were so similar.

The countryside in the foothills of the Beskydy Mountains.
Ruth and Miky...again!
Okay...Kevin and Miky! And some tall trees.
There are a lot of marked and unmarked paths all around this area. We want to do some decent hiking over the next few days.
Looking back at the village of Zasova.
It was a nice relaxing day. Today, we're off to the nearby town of Roznov pod Radhostem. It's only a 7km train ride each way, but the train leaves in about an hour...gotta go have some breakfast and get ready!
Happy Birthday Mom!
