I am away from tomorrow until Sunday as I am going to the Worker-communist Party of Iran’s congress. I won’t be blogging for that period as we won’t have personal access to phones and the internet. Try not to miss me too much.

Other things I am doing this month are:

Have a good weekend.


  1. Yes, try to take some time out in Belgium to take in the sights.

    I have not had the chance to visit (yet) but it’s what I would try to do.

  2. Hate to be a pedant, but its Ghent. Nice city, be sure to enjoy a bottle of Gulden Draak next to their famous belfry. Have fun 🙂

  3. You know we’ll still miss you, but it sounds like you are going to have a great time and give many people a lot of information.
