Catching up, from the 10.04.2018.
After exploring the Adrspach rock-formations we stayed a night in Pardubice, known for its chemical industry where Synthesia used to produce Semtex, at a young woman's place who we met on Couchsurfing. Was nice having a warm shower again and hearing stories from our host who used to live in Australia for 6years. We were both wondering why she had left Aussie to go back into "the city of industry" till we found out that she used to have cancer and only back in Slovakia did she receive the treatment she needed without going in debt for the rest of her life.
The next day we were happy to see our car still where we left it after having heard the night before that the grandma of our host had her car stolen many times in this area. In the morning we had a look around the city but since we both aren't such city dwellers we spent most of our time in the library doing research and editing. Same day we made our way to Brno since Julia had to catch a flight to London for a few days doing work.
While reading up about the cultures of Czech Republic we stumbled upon the Romani people. Not knowing too much about them we went into the the museum of Romani cultures in Brno, fascinated and shocked about the history and current affairs of this ethic group we knew that we wanted to find out more and get to know some of them. Full of thoughts and energy we came out of the museum and while getting ready to drive Julia to the airport, knock knock, someone looked through the driver window.
"Hello, I'm Virgram. Do you need help".
