The flu got me, that’s why it has been so quiet here, even though I had planned posts this week about the result of the Dutch elections, an interesting workshop I attended on gender issues in Armenia, about how to celebrate two birthdays and a birth on the same day and about cleaning up swastikas. See Thomas’ blog Follow the Way for pics of that.
By the way, there are new signs on Baghramian already, one on the exact same spot where we cleaned a swastika. Does this have to turn into a weekly event???? At least our work got noticed. 😉 Well, it did actually, already while we were cleaning. Noticeably, the only people who commented on what we were doing, were people who were old enough to have lived through World War II and maybe even fought against Nazi-Germany themselves. These people were all very positive about what we were doing. Other younger people just looked at us as if we were a bunch of weirdos (which, according to them, probably we were).
I will be back when I don’t feel like my head is filled with bambak any longer.
