In the Czech village of Louka, in southern Moravia, one 90-year-old woman volunteers to beautify the homes of her neighbors. Agnes Kasparkova is a former farmer who picked up a new hobby in her retirement—painting. She uses her spare time to paint traditional Moravian motifs in bright blue-ultramarine across the walls of Louka’s buildings.

One of our favourite Prague sites just got better–by adding a very cool Google map. Click on one of the markers to see how it works and find links to The Prague Vitruvius , an illustrated guide to Czech architecture and heritage
I am now addicted to the word Cool for describing Prague. Read this translated web page: Maybe Venice and Barcelona which are in the news for resident objections to tourism can learn from this.
I had to follow up the previous post because just a day later I saw an article about Bohemia Boards and Brews, a board game cafe’. It is open now in Vrsovice with a Grand Opening slated for mid September. The early reviews are all raves including the Zemsky pivovar and popcorn machine. Check it out and leave a comment here, please.
