We arrived in Olomouc at an auspicious moment. Saturday morning the town was celebrating a “hunt” festival. Festivities began with a parade into the upper square; sadly, I was not asked to serve as drum major.
I can only speculate that the guys in the capes and the hats are the huntsman. The major event of the morning was a dog show, with handlers displaying their not really well-trained dogs. During the Czech announcements, I could understand “setter,” “retriever,” and “springer spaniel.” The high point, however, was avian, not canine.
