In Olomouc

We spent yesterday exploring this beautiful Moravian city, full of narrow streets, buildings that make you catch your breath . . .

. . . and (as it turns out) a charming tortoise in the main square:

We read to a large and generous audience at Konvikt (part of Palacky University) and then went out for drinks and a light meal (slices of duck breast for me on buttered toast, and rabbit for John…). Here’s John reading:

We’re meeting with a class later this morning and then travelling on to Ostrava. It’s a glorious morning, the sky mauve and pale gold. And there’s frost on every roof.

  1. The tortoise is a lot bigger than spot I or Stripe I or Spot II or StripeII, John. You both look like you’re having a wonderful time.
    Love,
