Village life in Slovakia a joy (video included)

“There are just so many people with real friendships, who care about real things,” said marketing and media advisor Alan Craig, an American living in village Sekule, in the Záhorie Region. He adds with smile that village life in Slovakia is pure joy and with a slight nostalgia recalls traditions from Pennsylvania in comparison to Slovakia.
