The December 7, 2015 political agreement signed by the representatives of the General National Congress in Tripoli (Western Libya) and the House of Representatives in Tobruk (Eastern Libya), along with the cast of other ad hoc political figures and political party representatives, spearheaded by then-UN envoy Bernardino Leon , came to life with much ordeal and international praise.

A Busy Day on a Rick Steves Tour

18Jul

A good tour leader — especially on a Rick Steves tour  — creates a learning atmosphere on the bus, laces together a good balance of sights and experiences, and makes sure there’s lots of fun along the way. In this montage of clips, I get a chance to talk about how the European Union funds ethnic regions (in this case, Ehrenberg Castle in Tirol, which spans Austria and Italy); we visit one of my favorite open-air folk museums ( Ballenberg in Switzerland ); we poke into an old farmhouse to ring some cowbells; and we rip down the mountain on a summer luge ride. All 26 of us enjoyed two trips each on the longest and most exciting luge course in Tirol (Biberwier, on the road between Innsbruck and Reutte)

Refugee Fever Dreams

14Oct

A very thoughtful reader left me a message in the discussion section of my author page on Amazon recently, asking me about the resilience that Kläre, the main character in my novel, Even in Darkness , demonstrated. Since the book is based on a real family story, the reader wanted to know about the people or experiences that informed Kläre’s character and allowed her to develop that life skill. As I was trying to write to the reader that within the boundaries of their society and times, Kläre’s family fostered independence, education, and the ability to get on in the world for Klare and all her siblings, I was distracted by the terrible images of a drowned refugee child, and the thudding drumbeat of news about the flood of Syrian refugees trying to escape to Europe and of course, to the U.S

By Alexander Winning and Katya Golubkova MOSCOW, Feb 28 (Reuters) – Thousands of stunned Russians laid flowers and lit candles on Saturday on the bridge where opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was shot dead near the Kremlin, a murder that showed the risks of speaking out against President Vladimir Putin. Nemtsov, 55, was shot four times in the back by assailants in a white car as he walked across the bridge over the Moskva River in central Moscow with a Ukrainian woman, who was unhurt, just before midnight on Friday, police said. Police sealed off the blood-stained bridge close to the red walls of the Kremlin and Red Square for two hours overnight, then hosed it down as people came to pay tribute to one of Putin’s biggest opponents over Russia’s role in Ukraine
