One good news and a bad one

I repeated in many conversations that the future of the relation between Europe and Islamic countries will be deeply influenced by developments in Tunisia and Egypt.

Then this week we got a good news, with the approval of the new Constitution in Tunis, and a bad one, with the candidature of the military ruler in Cairo.

Wait and see

Family tradition: the ‘mele annurche’ from the garden

annurche

As every year at Christmas time we go to the old garden just in front of the house and collect some of the apple of the ‘melo annurco’ that has always been there.

There are apples for anybody willing to do the effort to catch them from the ground.

Now we have planted 2 trees in our garden in Belgium too, and are looking forward to the first harvest.

Biological diversity in action.
