glezhia / well done! Happy to hear that your hard work pays off, but do try to get some time off too. It sounds like you deserve it! All the best wishes for 2011.
cami / you are absolutely right. Provided you have someone home....
Gerrit / yes, Belgium is a mess. I follow the events a bit more closely there since I have a good friend from Belgium, and he is stuck in South America for 8 years by now! Haha! Yeah, some world events are pretty gloomy; I am worried about the Palestinians, I am not anti-jewish or even anti-Israeli, just worried about things are going. It just seems so much more difficult now than 30 years ago when I visited all areas of Israel/Palestine and talked to so many people. Racism have to be resisted and faught everywhere, everyday, small and big, it is a struggle.
Anyways, hang on in there, Gerrit, look forward to read the highlights of 2011!
