Postcards from Old Europe

I was in Romania until yesterday evening and am about to head off to an offsite meeting. This means that there won’t be much of a postcard this week. Last week’s card looked a the upcoming expansion of the European Union; this week’s trip gave me a chance to talk about the subject with people who live in a country which is actively working on joing the Union by 2007 – 10. I was surprised by the fervor with which my clients viewed European integration – it would do us western Europeans a world of good to try to look at the subject from the perspective of our less fortunate neighbors.

Enough for today – I’ll be back next week with an in-depth look at old and new Europe.
