Reader feedback: Dreams meet reality

Re: Police take on gang trafficking women, News in short, June 28 - July 4, Vol 10, No 25

I stayed in Slovakia for 12 years as a freelance journalist, with about 20 articles published, and a writer up to last February. Through my own experience I can tell you that some young, and even mature, Slovak girls trully don't know the real, terrible face of the seemingly rosy Western world and try to find easy money by any means!
