I have this new tradition.
Whenever I go on holiday I go I take this T-shirt along. It was given to me by a neighbour in Bratislava, a very old, eternally cheerful lady. She still cleans apartments even though she must be well over 70. The T-shirt reads ‘we love this country’.
When Slovaks abroad spot it they tend to greet me. Since I have a weird, unexplicable fondness for Slovaks. From all the places I’ve been I felt best among Palestinians, Slovaks and – distant third – Americans.
In Greece I got greeted by at least 10 Slovaks in two days of wearing this T-Shirt. In Brussels by two people in four hours.
We’ll see how London does.
