Just a quickie because raed will kill me if I will be late. I now not only have access to someone with access to email I now have access to a phone. So I got a chance to talk to Diana, she said I sounded British. And Stephan also called. If you have been reading the blog for a while you will know that he is the person I have shared a flat with for 4 years in Vienna. He said he will call again today and we will have more time to talk about the blog and all. I am sure some of this "talk" will end up published somewhere in Austria because he has been working with the Austrian News Agency. If you want to know more you will have to ask him since I have no idea what he does with these things, I still don't know what he did with that email interview we did a couple of weeks before the war started. Any way he said it is ok to put his email on the blog so go ask him email addy was wrong it has been corrected now
Yesterday after emailing the huge entry to Diana I took a walk down Karad and saw three tanks parked in front of an ice cream shop. Pretty surreal. And later at night 4 of the soldiers stationed in al ameriyah street were walking back holding these kerosene lights we call 'laleh'. They have bought them from the shop down the street because their generator broke down or something. Night watch done in very romantic light.
