On an early morning walk through the downtown market one morning I saw these cute old ladies selling flowers. It was the image of water drops from the morning mist that formed on their transparent hair covers that I wish I could share with everybody wondering what Banská Bystrica is like. There is something vastly different about the elderly population here. It maybe the lingering hardworking socialist spirit in them but whatever it is they don’t seem to disappear from public life like many do in America.
