Ask me anything
With this blog I want to offer a kaleidoscopic overview of the history, people, geography, art, architecture, languages, etc. of Central and Eastern Europe, a region that is still a bit unknown and misunderstood, even more than 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It seems that a lot of people still suffer from "Mauer im Kopf"'. It will mainly show photographs (both old and recent), but expect the occasional quotes, videos, posters etc. The title is inspired by Milan Kundera's novel.
