Photographer's Note

This is taken in a small town somewhere between Poprad and Presov, and west of Spisky Hrad. I think it's Levoca, but maybe someone with more detailed local knowledge can put me right.

I posted it since it's so typical of small towns from the immediate post communist era. Relatively few cars then, and still Skodas and eastern bloc vehicles prevailing. The most stiking thing though was that it seems that old the restoration work had been concenrated on banks and churches, and much of the domestic housing was suffering from years of neglect. It may have been a false impression but this didn't seem to apply to the Czech Republic to anything like the same extent. Amazing to reflect how much things have changed here in a little over 10 years.
