    In the depths of << la Mer de Glace >> , that is, going down through a Moulin ( glacier mill ) , a vertical tunnel of blue ice , way to the unknown ... Now, I'm exploring the bowels of this glacier- as H.B de Saussure , Louis Agassiz & Joseph Vallot already did in the past- although this time my partners are Jean-Marc Boivin and Janot Lamberton .

    In the Soviet Union, remembering what it was like to be a 17-year-old girl volunteering to kill fascists in WWII.

    Also in the Moominvalley. Is it still Moominvalley if the Moomins aren't actually in it?

    I'm in a South Pacific island and have just watched a "holy" pig being slaughtered ritually.

    In Trieste, learning Finnish. Because when the entire language centre in your brain has been shut down, why not learn Finnish?

    I just dropped the baby carrier at an apartment door, knowing the baby will be safe, now I can make good my escape from an angry employer.

    I'm at the side of a road in Ohio wondering what happened to my girl that I am sure was with me in the crash.

    I'm in ancient Rome, trying to find out who the severed hand I found in a fountain belonged to. Official channels aren't being helpful.
