BEC monthly newsletter 08/2016

The livin' is still easy!
Summer is far from over: catch a movie at the Brno lake summer cinema, come on a trip to South Moravia with us, win tickets to a wine tasting, listen to classical music at Špilberk castle, and make a wish while watching shooting stars in the night sky!

 What expats say: I am living a dream come true
Soheil Shadloo is a young musician from Tehran, Iran. There he could only fantasize about having a band, now in Brno he has one. “If you have faith in something, you will get it,” he says.

 At the movies: Summer cinema with AHOY
Have you caught a movie at a summer cinema this season yet? How about Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen – it's bright, fun and will probably strike a chord with expats, especially those with artistic leanings.

Food corner: Finally! Vietnamese comes to town
For a long time, there were few quality non-European food options in Brno. A surprising state of affairs given the sizable Vietnamese population, in particular. Filling this void is the recently opened restaurant on Běhounská street. What are you waiting for? Gỗ!
Summer camp is where kids make major steps forward in the development of their characters and adults reevaluate their lives. Both are very scary things.
