Om een uur of tien wordt ik wakker, Wijnand slaapt nog , op de kamer is het niet om uit te houden zo warm dus ga ik maar naar beneden naar de bar om mijn dagboekje even wat bij te schrijven. Zo waar staan er een paar knappe dames achter de bar, de meeste Russische vrouwen die we tot nu hebben gezien waren niet om aan te zien. Ik bestel een colaatje en begin met schrijven. Vaandag gaan we in elk gevel het mausoleum bezoeken en verder is alles prima, zolang het maar iets goedkops is, tering wat gaat het geld hier hard. Als ik om 12.45u terug kom om de kamer is Wijnand wakker, maar het is inmiddels alweer te laat voor het mausoleum, dus gaan we maar even een uurtje slapen, we zijn ook ... read more

From November 1997 to February 1998, I was detailed to the White House Office of the Federal Environmental Executive, where I helped write several Executive Orders related to Greening of the Government. The only travel I did was for my boss. She got sick, and with 24 hours notice I had to fly to Lawton, Oklahoma to give a speech at the Oklahoma Environmental Educators Conference. I was in good company; following my speech Senator Inhofe gave his speech.

Hey there folks (it's my turn to type this time ...gmt) Well, we've been here in Moscow for 4 days now and we're still alive and kicking. Here's an interesting adventure that happened to us yesterday though. We were sitting around in the Metro station waiting for a surprise rain-storm to subside when a Police Officer approached us and asked to see our Passports. This was the second time that a policeman had made such a request during the course of the afternoon (We thought some murder had been committed by a foreigner or something). Of course, we generally don't walk around with our Passports and valuables on our person so when we showed him our photocopies he didn't seem too impressed and he brought us over to talk to his other police-type buddies. Of course, ... read more

Moscow 1989-1995 To get a flavour of the world, I arrived in Moscow in August 1989, just two months before the Berlin Wall was turned down. I spent in Moscow six years, in a city where stricking changes were taking place. All of us that spent together such a long time, do agree that there are no words of gratitude to our Russian teachers that were dedicated to their work in spite of the whole economic and social crisis that the country underwent. ... read more
