The Catastrophe...

Dear friends,

I think this page will be just illustration of it used to be till the last Friday November 20. Whole area was hit by very strong (170 km/h) orkan-like wind ... As my mom characterised that :

"It is like there was a giant and cut all the trees down..."

I can't believe that in all... it must be a bad dream but it isn't ... Adieu forests, trees and beauty of this area... I will remember it as it used to be...

LOL this is my first skiing pic :)

Taken in Zdiar right on the end of season. Don't ask me in what year it was taken ;) I think in last century LOL

    I was shocked about your picture. Japan Slovak Association said at their website that it will take over 100 years to completely recover. I do really hope to be able to see the glorious view of High Tatra as soon as possible.

    Well, Bilikova chata is not dangerous for me, I don't like beer. But places with grogue and garlic soup definitely are. Btw looking at your 1st skiing pic, I think I know what inspired Luc Besson for Taxi2. That was the idea of mountain taxi :)
