“Congratulations on the death of your enemy”

So we’re a bit behind the eight ball here in Albania in terms of international news.

The overwhelming amount of media coverage surrounding the death of Osama Bin Laden that I can only imagine has taken hold of the US hasn’t happened here. It actually took me a few days to hear about it….and when I did I had to google it to make sure it was true. Just evidence of how disconnected I sometimes am from anything not Albania.

But, today at a coffee my friend Max said “I guess I should wish you congratulations on your enemy’s death.” Jen and I looked at him blankly…then laughed when we got the joke. It’s kindof refreshing to not be in a world where a terrorist’s death is the only thing we hear about!

    All the news has been amazing – showing the celebrations re one’s death – even such an evil person – gives one pause for thought! Not sure how it looked to others across the waters – wonder if the other shoe will drop???
    Love your insights and pictures – stay safe!
