A chapel in Kutna Hora is decorated with bones from 40,000 plague victims. Creepy! The chandelier contains every type of human bone.

    wow, that is creepy. Why would they do something like that? No place to bury the dead? You are seeing some very interesting places.

    Yes--it's all quite interesting! The weather is about the same this week--in the 30s. Okay with a nice warm coat!
