Re: Whips and water: Easter in Slovakia, By Matthew J. Reynolds and Zuzana Habšudová, Apr 16 - 23, 2001, Vol 7, No 15
I am disgusted by the authors of this article. There are stupid people everywhere, but now I feel like ours is a nation of alcoholics.
I grew up in our capital, a place where traditions [like hitting women with sticks and splashing them with water] have been replaced with perfumes; it is no fun to throw a girl into the Danube river. However [in those days] the fun and not the alcohol was always the most important.
I can't feel sorry about Ms Holková - it is no wonder nobody is willing to visit her, if she and her father were only able to attract boys with money and shots.
When you take a look at this article and the others, like it in the section "Around Slovakia", I wonder if this website is really promoting Slovakia or only cursing and blaming it. Fortunately, some emigrants do a better job.
