        Times appear to be tough in Slovakia and Europe. I have two young cousins who are new to the work market, and they had to leave Eastern Slovakia to find jobs in Bratislava and Prague.

        I will be giving up a beautiful Alaska sunny summer to go over into the rain and floods this Saturday. I hope I bring them sunshine (all my responsibility, like MacArthur returning to the Philippines!)

        There is a 3 week refresher Slovak course on the calendar and the wedding of my Goddaughter in Munich right after that. Then I have to dash back to Slovakia to enjoy August and practice the language. I was in a seminar and two Russian professors were arguing about data and its meaning on Climate Change, and was able to pick out "kazdy den" in one's "daily data readings". Otherwise Russians speak lousy Slovak.

        Best of luck to the mason! European masters often have a sense of art in their work that we don't see in the US.

            Hi Vlad!

            Great to hear that. I will have to pause sometime to think of how we can work out getting together sometime. I have been wanting to do that for years, so we can try to work it out by private email. It might work on my way from the Krakow-Lubovna to school in Modra around the 4th or 5th of July,if I can divert on the way south to where you may be.

            Will be in touch. I am excited about the trip and all that may happen.

              I realize I'm jumping in here a bit late. I usually fly into Vienna from the US. It seems to be less expensive flying into Kosice. I usually spend a day/night in Bratislava and then take a nice train trip to the eastern part of the country. Maybe it would be cheaper to fly into Kosice than spend a night in Bratislava, but I do like the train trip.

              As to language. Between now and the end of Aug. you can easily learn 50 words. This would help you and the people there will be impressed that you made the effort.

I should also add that we don't speak Slovak. A cousin that knows the language and some family there from my husbands grandmother side of the family will also be there at the same time we are.
