Actors, books, writers …

January 29, 2019

The Art Theatre initiative “Famous actors reading contemporary Bulgarian writers” brought the favourite Bulgarian stage and film actress (40+ years on the stage) Tatyana Lolova to Bratislava on 29 January 2019 where she presented Maria Laleva’s book “Life on the Rocks“. Discussing art and life with art people is a very hearty experience. More on the book after I read it.

Campus Coworking

January 15, 2019

Coworking space with a view and atmosphere in the very heart of Bratislava – Campus Cowork. Their tonight’s event ‘Work smarter, not harder’ just made me realize the huge difference between the two approaches. Smart working presupposes hard working, but the opposite is not always true. Campus’ upcoming events can be found here >>>

Some experiences can be relaxing, others – scary… With VR x.periences on 26, Zámocká Str. Bratislava, you choose the x.perience you wish to experience. It is amazing how easily the mind can be tricked (depending on what you see or don’t). In virtual realities. And not only.

Mysterious signals from space

January 12, 2019

The mysterious signals from space, reported on a couple of days ago, seem to come from many different distances. More at BBC.

Aliens? “It just seems completely inconceivable that there could be that many different alien civilisations all deciding to produce the same kind of signal in the same way – that just seems highly improbable.”

Oh, these incomprehensible and inconceivable distant galaxies…

Cuisines across countries differ and yet sometimes they have a lot in common. I can’t help dropping a line on the Slovak dish Kapustnica [cabbage soup], made with sauerkraut, mushrooms and various spices. Traditionally eaten on Christmas, but Slovak restaurants offer it year around. Delicious. Must try in Slovakia!
