this article reminds me of our family trip to Poland

 9 Houses Built out of Spite

this collection of stories reminds me of the towers of the old church in the old city of Krakow
the same church that possesses the folk tale of the bugler of Krakow also has a tale about its mismatched towers

the story has a tragic ending and no real lesson
there is something to the effect that one brother built one tower and the brother built the other
one built their tower taller and more ornate
this agitated the brother
so he killed him

across the the square within view of the towers is a market
at the main entrance to the old market hangs a knife
that is said to be the knife that the one brother killed the other
not sure of the truth to this story
