For those who wondered about me saying that I should have looked at a topographical map of Brno rather than just a city map before getting my accommodations, I am including a couple of picture to perhaps clarify it.  The shots are taken from the hill I climbed to get to the point I could start going somewhere.  I was planning to complain until I saw an old woman with bag of apples in one hand and a sack of potatoes in the other beat me up the hill.
