yesterday's mail brought this card from a slovak-czech artist friend who had been on vacation in the bohemian forests. blanka always gets her traveling companions to write messages on cards she sends to family and friends. we've made several trips together and i've written lots of messages to people i don't know. this time though she was at a mutual friend's summer home in sumava. so a card from blanka and a bonus message from silvia, a slovak artist who runs a gallery in bratislava.
