Reader feedback: Some are organizing

A very warm welcome to Slovakia, Reader feedback, June 2-8, Vol 9, No 21

I think that some Slovaks are becoming more aware of their natural wealth. In the tiny village of Osturna, the citizenry are actively discussing whether there should be ecotourism or not. I think these grassroots organizations can and should play a major role in leading the country, town by town, village by village, into the 21st century.

I would hate to lose the log cabins and pristine land of Osturna, which I love.
