Reader Feedback: Easterners still the best draw

Chris, I loved your article ["Culture Shock: In praise of easterners", by Chris Togneri, Vol. 7 No. 38, October 8 - 14]. My only experience in Slovakia was in Bratislava where we met some truly wonderful people who also went out of their way for us.

I can't wait to go back and next time I will make a special effort to visit eastern Slovakia. Thanks for the info.
