Debris from the first three rooms was successfully cleared away and now it came time to clear it away from the last two rooms as well. Could there be anything more pleasant than a Saturday spent doing physical activity? We were not able to determine the answer to this question so we decided to get over it. We rather took shovels and we finally sent debris into the past. All that was left are just nicely cleaned rooms ready for the next phase of reconstruction.
Floor in rooms of our building was covered with decent layer of debris after removing old plaster from walls and ceilings. At first glance, it was clear to us that one could just hardly arrange for better scenery for World War II film making. We therefore approached several US film studios with mutually beneficial cooperation offer. For better imagination we even filmed a short battle scene in the premises and we attached it to our presentation. The answer however was not coming.
The previous owner of the building did a great job and removed the old plaster in almost all rooms. But there was still one room left where captivating patterns on the walls and timeless oil paint unmistakably proclaimed that Stalin died just recently, West Side Story is being introduced on Broadway, and Sputnik will soon plunge the world into silent amazement. We therefore did not hesitate a second. With enthusiasm and revolutionary chants on our lips we started to chip away silent witnesses of the past until an adobe brick wall did not pop up from under their thick layers.
After we successfully found a suitable location for setting up brewery enterprise a time has come to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Our unequal struggle with the nature and its elements tirelessly decomposing what was once proudly called the cultural center has begun. As a first thing we decided to remove dense vegetation which prevented any movement around the property. With a feeling which the first settlers of the Wild West once experienced, we step by step liberated surroundings of our building from the rule of the endless bunch of bushes and creeping plants.
Our efforts were noticed by a local TV channel TV Rimava. They made a short story about us which was broadcasted as a part of this year’s seventh release of their news program called Rimaviny. Video contains English subtitles.
