Brno, Czech Republic

Věra lived in Brno, near the Abbey of Saint Thomas where Gregor Mendel bred peas. She was a programmer who worked from home for the department of health. She could look out her window at the tourists flocking before the opatství gate. People take so much trouble to make history seem real, but it seemed to Věra they got a less accurate story than she got by reading a book and looking things up on the internet.
