Iv been here and had a wonderful time but I just read a story in the news about some of the cobblestones in the streets of Prague being hewn from Jewish gravestones in the area. A man on his way to work in the 80,s had noticed a fresh pile waiting to be laid that day and noticed Hebrew letters on the side that would obviously be face down, so he took some and still has them today. The mans name is Leo Pavlat and he is the director of the Prague Jewish museum. There needs to be some kind of acknowledgment of this so people know what they are walking on. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/stories-46845131

I watched more of your tubes, thanks to show me how it should look. I also promote my local region in Zumberak, NW Croatia with youtube movies, but it's rural, inland part of Croatia, no Adriatic Sea. Have you been here? Please can you watch few of my short promo films, and tell critique? I focus on linking of cultural and touristic experience in my region. Thank you, Igor Suljagic.
