Journalism, Czech style #2

One of my former students, Ondřej Hellebrant, now works as a journalist for a daily newspaper in the ridiculously pretty town of Český Krumlov. I can report that journalists in the Czech Republic face exactly the same issues we do in New Zealand, especially around staffing levels and equipment. Ondřej has to put out a local version of a regional paper every day with just two other reporters. He's a busy lad. 

Perhaps the only real difference is that Ondřej's office is in the courtyard of a medieval castle...
