In the Balkans…where to call me…
ISTANBUL- I’ll be working around the Balkans for approximately the next two weeks, though I’ll remain in touch with Turkey via phone and internet.
In 2008, I spent about six months in Serbia while in university, also visiting Bosnia and Kosovo, and briefly, Macedonia and Greece.

Today bne published my story on the threat posed by the country’s communists after Moldova’s ruling coalition was forced to disband parliament and call for new elections.
“Growing hopes the ruling pro-EU coalition in Moldova would finally bring Europe’s poorest state a period of political stability and reforms have been dashed as the acting head of state was forced to dissolve parliament on September 28 and call snap elections for November 28. Worse, recent moves to lift the immunity of former president and long-time head of the Communist Party, Vladimir Voronin, and prosecute him is a sign of how concerned many are about the communists returning to power.”
