Happy Spicy New Year to my old and new friends and to my readers who are invited to ask more questions, in the purely cosmopolitan Jewish tradition (the worst is always the one “She-Eino Yodea Lishol”(who doesn’t know how to ask a question). This post is a brief and very superficial overview on an intense time in Thailand.
Cosmopolitanism means celebration, of the Human Rights Day, called here the Democracy Day (a public holiday!), of Hanouka with the Chan Klan Road Jews, travelling to gorgeous Laos, tasting french wine and eating beautiful Thai food…and even the mind is working, preparing a conference on Language rights, inclusion and the prevention of ethnic conflicts concocted by Fernand de Varennes…with my modest logistical support;-)
I’ve just landed in Thailand and already have the palate, the vision and all my senses awakened under a mild and pleasant sunshine. I believe I’m closer to Paradise, a very cosmopolitan paradise…surprisingly! This post will take you from the river thames to the river Mae Ping, but also from Geneva to Jerusalem…via Jaipur, somehow.
