First Day in Ostrava

I had always planned to spend the 1st day in Ostrava just wondering around recording my first impressions.  

I left my hotel and the 1st thing I see is this car advertising Sushi.

Which is pretty amazing considering that Ostrava is considering that Ostrava is over 600 km from any sea.

Though it was Sunday morning these women were cleaning the footpath outside the pub.

The Kiosks and food shops fascinated me.

Because it was Sunday there wasn't a lot of people around. These were some that caught my eye.
