Running throughout June, ‘Brno in Comics’ shows the rich visuals of Czech comic art.
In the deep mid-winter when the alarm bell gets more strident, the mornings get blacker and the rain more wet, what drives us on at Europe Direct Leeds? Do we just mope and moan and envy our colleagues on holiday-currently there’s one sampling the beaches of Cuba and another enjoying the craic in Dublin. No we do not. Our cure for the wintertime blues is to travel the world without leaving Leeds.
In the evening we were closer to home manning a bookstall at a Turkish party held by the tutors, students and their partners in the Part Time Language Department of Leeds Metropolitan University. Regular readers may remember that we did an event with Leeds Met on this year’s European Day of Languages and we are very grateful to Jacqui, lecturer in Turkish, for inviting us back; Turkey is of course a candidate for EU membership.
Now we are all really looking forward to our Europe Direct Children’s Christmas party on Saturday by which time the black rainy morning will be replaced by a sharp, fresh invigorating dawn and the ground will be covered by a generous helping of crisp white snow. Caribbean beaches?who needs them?
