Arriving in England; Apologies for the Delay
The Marshall orientation was really striking. We heard speeches from Tom Friedman of the NY Times, former UK foreign minister Jack Straw, editor-in-chief of Newsweek Mark Whittaker, former under-sec. of state Rich Armitage and more. In London, we attended receptions at both the Parliament (at Westminister) and the Foreign Minister's office. The week presented more than enough food for thought, and quite a bit of political inspiration.
I've only been now in Bradford for two days, but I find it a fascinating place. It is one of the most globally diverse spots I've ever been too, with people and restaurants from all over the globe. And to more precise descriptions, I'll return in my next blog entry...Cheers!
