Right, almost done with this phase of the trip. Met with various Senior Officials ealier today, and tonight dinner with a number of old friends including the deputy prime minister (who is 32 and taking time out from her postgraduate studies in nuclear physics to serve in the government). Then tomorrow back north to Kosovo for another conference, and finally home on Saturday evening.
I must say it’s very heartening to be in a country where the peace process has been as successful as it is here; politicians from all sidesappear to have bought into it and even to win elections on it. So much more encouraging than certain other cases that come to mind.
