Today we went to Silje's fund raising dinner for the orphanage she'll work in this summer in India. The history of how the home started is quite amazing and inspirational.
Read it : here. And Silje, you are inspirational also, for going there (and maybe biking to Torp-festivalen)!
Well, as some may know, we were planning to go to the provinces Yunnan, Sichuan, Qinghai and Gansu in China this summer. But, typically, with normal Sabrina-luck, these are 4 of the 5 Chinese provinces there is Tibetan riots these days. So now the moments between paper-writing and exam-practising is used on reading about other alternative travel routs/areas. Because, really, before I never thought about the fact that China is actually as large and diverse as Europe and that you can not see it all (unless you have time to see it all of course).
More on China: One of my papers these days is about what might happen to the international system now as China is rising. And no matter which approach I use I seem to come back to the fact that we will soon enter a new Cold War. So you were right Daniel. Sad! (Btw: Foreign Policy had a great issue on the subject. Here!)
Alors. Now it's time for much needed sleep! Night!
