My young friend Lena from across the way is studying law in Konstanz, one of Germany’s elite universities.
She’s currently doing a couple of semesters in Istanbul, which sounds a bit unusual to me, giving that Turkish isn’t a language that she appears to master to any significant degree.
But then again – what do I know?
Having explored Bulgaria – of all places – for a weekend (and written about it in great – bordering on the lurid – detail, almost giving her aging grey-haired mother a heart attack in the process), she’s popped over to Teheran for a week or so.
In other news today……
The Wall Street Journal reports on a crackdown in Iran on “fashionable head attire” and hair salons “giving decadent Western-style haircuts”.
Draconian sentences have been handed down.
Mrs jb asked how long Lena’s going to be in Iran.
“About 30 years, by the look of it” I said.
We’ll write, though….
