Brno, the way we like it

After spending a few weeks in my native Greece with friends and family, I am happy to be back in Brno, a city I have been living in for the last 6 years and which I am perfectly happy to call "home".

Brno offers quality of life, with ample green around, clean and beautiful surroundings, good transportation, lower living costs compared to other cities of it's size, plenty of cultural events and a friendly, stress-free atmosphere, to mention but few of it's qualities.

However, being a mummy and a housewife, one often cannot access all the interesting things that are going on around. For such a person, as myself, limited by various practicalities of everyday life, it would be more important to have an event tailored to certain particular needs.

An idea, thus, came, that why don't we start a gathering for ladies (and that need not necessarily be only for the "mothers with small children" group) where we can have time and space to be together, get to know each other, exchange experiences and valuable information and enjoy, in new creative ways?

In fact, as a professional dancer, I would be happy to offer lessons of classical Indian dance and relaxation/meditation, during that time. Brnopolis would be happy to support us, provided that there would be a group of us interested in attending the gatherings.

So what do you say? Is this something you would like to join in? To meet for example once a week, somewhere near the centre of town (so that it would suit all for transportation) and at a time when children are at school, say around 9.30 or 10 am for about an hour or 90 mins?

Apart from the dancing, we may choose to do anything else we like during these gatherings, for example share experiences, visit places of interest, conduct workshops of different kinds where each of us can show her favorite kind of hand-work, etc., learn different kinds of cooking - you name it!

My feeling is that it is important to create a group, based on friendship and understanding and from there we can step on to any "platform" we would like. All we have to do is to spread the word and make it a priority to come together. I'm sure we will all enjoy it very much.

I am looking forward to your feedback and any ideas and suggestions that may enrich this effort and get it off the ground - and sooner rather than later!
