It's a colorful world

       I have always lived in my birth country and despite all the problems we have here I simply can’t imagine myself living or wanting to live anywhere else. For me this small comfortable piece of land, no matter how hopeless it may seem it is sometimes, this is home. I don’t travel much, mainly because of the bad economic state that our society has been facing, well, ever since we became an independent country. Also because up until very recently we could not leave the country so easily…

"The Ambassador"

 

When was the last time a documentary about poor Africa sold out a large cinema in pre-premiere? (In fact, when was the last time you considered if to watch a documentary about poor Africa or not since your TV channel scheduled it for just about when you got home from work or about 1½ hours after you planned to go to sleep?) Mads Brügger has done something really crazy with his…

If you go by bike

      Recently I noticed that there is a huge difference between countries concerning transportation. My personal favorite is my bike, my feet or public transport in the winter. The thing that most people would say is, yes, I do not own a car because I have no money, but I do have a driving license I am just having…

Knocking at Schengen door with invisible bacteria Editorial

On the 1st of January 2007, Romania became a member state of the European Union. Former Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn himself was saying that Romania’s accession was a political decision rather than one mainly resulting from the fulfilment of entry criteria. Since then, the EU has learnt its lesson and has given up accepting any new members on pre-set dates, but only when the applicant is truly and fully prepared. It is also true that other states that had joined the bloc before Romania…

The Kanun

The Kanun (or Kanuni in its defined form in Albanian) is a set of traditional Albanian laws. It was first codified in the 15th century but the use of it has been outspread much earlier in time.

Although Kanuni is attributed to the Albanian prince Lekë Dukagjini, the rules evolved over time as a way to bring laws and rule to these lands. The code was divided…

The NeverEnding story

I woke up feeling restless this morning. I could not sleep at all. There was something in the air still reminding me of my recent summer vacation. I had forgotten about my student loans, credit loans and borrowed money. I had nothing on my mind. A twenty something year old postgraduate student with nothing to do, with nothing on her mind. Going through my everyday ritual of morning coffee and internet news I came to realize that my empty brain is just an expression of my total and utter feeling… Continue
