Back in the CSSR
I'm currently in the former Czechoslovakia at the start of an extended reporting trip. Most of my work this time around is connected in some way or another with the 20th anniversary of the collapse of communism (or at least the Warsaw Pact). It's a personally meaningful milestone, as I was living in the region in 1989 (as an exchange student at the then-Karl Marx University of Economics in Budapest) and saw many of that fall's events firsthand.
More on that later. For now I have a train to catch.
