Two years have passed… [Au trecut doi ani…]

…since the great spring we spent together as Chevening Fellows, learning about European Political Economy in one of the most beautiful places where one could be in this time of the year – East Sussex.

And one year has gone since the Alumni Conference of 2009. Are the predictions made then (shown in the fourth picture) still available? Are there many bad news on the way?

Waiting for good news, I’m using this blog post to greet everyone of my ‘fellow Fellows’ + the lovely hosts from the SEI

…and ask you “how are you coping with the crisis?” – a time of turmoil which appears to be far from a happy ending :-(

Unlike the Fellows of 2009 & 2010, those of us from 2008 (I don’t know about the ones before us) faced no real winter.

I was absolutely amazed with the lovely British weather about which I had heard so many nasty things. I loved it :-)

Sadly, the current global recession threw the entire world into some kind of perpetual winter, and – at least according to British newspapers – many things may not be as pleasant in the UK as we left them.

If anyone has the time, I’d like to know what you are doing, using this opportunity to thank you all for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, hoping we shall meet again someday!
