what you get here

This is not a blog which expresses instant opinions on current events. It rather uses incidents, books (old and new), links and papers as jumping-off points for some reflections about our social endeavours.
So old posts are as good as new! And lots of useful links!

snow




Less than 5 months after the last heavy snow, it's back! It's not quite as thick as shown here but this gives an idea of what it will be like within a few weeks here at 1,300 metres.
The weather broke while we were in Sofia - a superb run down from Bucharest on Sunday with the sun blazing down. I thought of giving Sofia a miss and driving another 5 hours to Thassos on the Aegian for swim! We ate in the open air on Sunday evening - and walked happily on Monday - through to after midnight. But during the night, the wind rose and the temperature dropped to zero!! But the drive back was good - sorry to leave Bulgaria which we love so much. Both nights we dined with friends....
