A short but sweet run through of world news…
First of all, not quite tomorrow’s news, but amazing enough to slide in after deadline: this BBC slideshow about a woman in Mozambique who sought refuge and then gave birth in a tree during March 2000 floods.
You’re not the only one who doesn’t like where airport security may be headed, but don’t give up on interesting travel experiences yet.
BBC describes the political temperature in Kigali as “rising,” with grenade attacks preceding French President Sarkozy’s visit next week.
Egypt’s also been going through tensions, and Tuesday’s New Zealand Herald gives some context to one city’s experiences with
a walk through Cairo’s religious history.
History also plays a major role in South America as Argentina rallies regional support over Falklands where oil is a sensitive topic.
Did you now that elephants ‘talk’?
Looking forward to this summer’s World Cup? I’m excited – but also a bit glad I’m not in charge of anything. Anyway, security is gearing up already, as NZ Herald reports : South Africa ‘ensures’ safety of World Cup fans. I know I’ll be ready!
And after this quick, little world tour, it’s time for this little Kroeker to get some sleep…
