US astronaut Feustel visits Havel at cottage

American astronaut Andrew Feustel, in the Czech Republic for a lecture series along with his wife Indira, visited former president Václav Havel on Tuesday. Mr Havel, who had been in poor health recently, is currently recuperating at his cottage. Mr Havel’s secretary, Sabina Tančevová, however, said that the former president was feeling better; she also described Tuesday’s meeting as unique. Andrew Feustel took part in the recent final mission of the space shuttle Endeavour and made international headlines by taking a plush toy of the famous Czech animated character Krtek (Little Mole) with him on the mission.
