Greece has always been a place of rediscovery for Barclay, but she wonders, "Can a Greek island be a good cure for love?"
If we put all our efforts into saving the euro, we must be prepared to safeguard free movement with the same conviction, as it is the very lifeblood of the single market and, hence, of our prosperity. Let me state this with total clarity: the free movement of people is as important as the free movement of services, capital and goods, and constitutes one of the basic pillars of the EU.
This is one of those rare moments in history when the foreign policy decisions that European governments make today determine the kind of countries their citizens wake up in tomorrow. Selling out is not an option.
What we are watching unfold before us is surely the hoped-for beginning of yet another Russian Renovatio -- and not just a dictator fantasy, but rather a collective desire -- "The Body" is being restored.

Now JR's gargantuan black and white snapshots, not unlike those in your high school yearbook, will "prove" that any French person can participate in the Republican restoration of France's temple of great (wo)men.
In East-Central Europe prior to 1989, the faces of the human rights movement were the signatories of Charter 77 in Czechoslovakia, the dissident writers in Hungary, the Solidarity trade union leaders in Poland, the renegade Party members in Romania. Roland Jahn doesn't disagree that these were important human rights movements. He was, after all, a part of them.
Q: I'll be visiting Milan this summer. Any suggestions of what to do and see, and the best places to stay?
Prague's party scene is more beer and jazz, less ecstasy and techno. Although not as cheap as it once was, Prague's beer-brewing skills are amongst the best on the planet and you can still party like a king on a peasant's budget.
