Talking of moles
If Pushkin thinks Czecho is a Mole heaven, or haven, it must be true.
I can't help but mention one of the Czechs' national icons, the delightful cartoon character Little Mole, beloved equally by children and adults - the Czechs do have a pronounced childlike streak to their character, by the way. It manifests in their playfulness and humor generally, but has a darker side to it too (viz some Czech politicians)
Anyway, sorry about the detour. Back to the Mole. There are several of his stories out on UTube and I thoroughly recommend them. Look up 'krtek'.
