Road work

Some Dutch visitors tell us that life in Slovakia is cheap compared to Holland. May be, we pay less tax, incomes are however much lower not to say that pensions are too small to live of and if the road is in bad condition you have to repair it with your neighbours. Our road was really in a bad state and since camping season is over our neighbour took the lead to mobilize all 4 house owners to start working on it. So far 12 trucks of stones, 10 with loam and 1 with gravel have been loaded and unloaded. Most work is done by hand, all neighbours participating. A formula, taking into account frequency of use and financial means have been worked out to divide the costs among us.
