Full teeth

This is going to be short, as I'm exhausted. When Czechs have had enough of something, they say, "I have full teeth". Well, my teeth are full of the relentless wind and driving rain I had to endure this afternoon. One motorist felt so sorry for me, he offered me a lift. I declined, but was sorely tempted to accept. If it's like this again tomorrow, I will curtail stage 1 and complete it later. There's no point continuing in such foul weather. No decision yet though; now it's time to meditate quietly over a pint of the excellent local brew.

I know you're exhausted Simon. I can only tell you what American construction workers say in a moment like this. "Hey, if it was easy they would have women in bikinis doing this." It's the struggle that makes you triumphant!

Hi Simon,

I remember when climbing the Himalayas a few years ago, it was sometimes just the thought of alcohol that kept me from collapsing on a heap to die of hypothermia and my bones picked dry by vultures...

Thanks for all the comments. That beer really hit the spot. I wonder if it's available anywhere in Prague.
