The unexpected is one of the things I look forward to on this trip. Martina was my tour guide to the Terezin and Lidice Memorials. She made a 7 hour tour go by very quickly, but I can't get to those pictures yet, however she did show me something that the children and families in the village of Terezin love to do. The village is surrounded by a moat that was intended to protect the Czechs from the Prussians. The moat has a stream flowing through it, but it is not full of water. Martina walked me down a path next to one of the moats so that I could feed the "beavers." Beavers have flat wide tails. I don't know what these things are. They were very tame, and they were happy to eat the rest of my hostel breakfast sandwich.
But what are they???
