London.

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.

Treat us to a cup of coffee

We are hell bent on improving the quality of this site. If you treat us to just one cup of coffee (2€) we will feel energized to raise the bar. Every donation will strictly be used to improve this website. So no, we won’t actually buy coffee. Thank you very much! PS We’re overjoyed with one cup of coffee, but if you’d like to treat us to several, we will just be overjoyed even more.
