Books, Bikes, and Food

Reviews, Recipes, Rides… and some other things, too.

I wrote a little something… (on Europe)


My wonderful University friend Katharina is not just a very clever vision scientist (it’s a branch of Psychology – until I met her, I didn’t know that either) but also a very talented chef. She shares her recipes over on Tea, Cake and Sandwiches and I encourage everyone to take a look. One word of warning though, it’ll make you hungry!

Katharina is hosting a very interesting series at the moment where she invites her friends who are also bloggers or those who, as she puts it, “do other amazing stuff” to guest post on all kinds of interesting issues, food or non-food related. This week, as a member of the first category of “friends who are also bloggers”, it was my turn. I wrote about the Euro crisis and about how we’re losing not just a currency but an incredible dream. Here’s an excerpt:

All over Europe, we are forgetting what Europe really is: an idea, a dream. A dream that we can work together to live in prosperity and in peace, in tolerance and in freedom. What is at peril in the crisis is a European Dream that is just as great and possibly even more ambitious than the American Dream.

If anyone is interested, you can read the rest here.

  1. Thank you. I will be clicking over to your longer post. Lately I’ve been feeling that I am the only one who still believes in that dream in this country *sigh*.
