Hello readers! I hope you had a great weekend and you’re enjoying the Olympics. The Olympics definitely does have a way of making you represent your nation or nation/state (It’s the Global Affairs thang, I can’t help but call it that).
This is your week in foreign affairs:
Many of you saw my post about BBC’s Network Africa. Network Africa was a radio breakfast show, defined by BBC World Service as “Africa’s Biggest Network Show.” It was on the airwaves since the 1970’s and I remember listening to it on the internet every morning when I was a graduate student at Rutgers. Well last week Network Africa aired their last show and I, like many was deeply affected. I mean where will I hear African proverbs? What about the African Presidents parodies? And what will happen to the bird that makes his call every morning? I still don’t know what I will do without a light hearted African News program. So if any of you have suggestions let me know, because I’m shopping for a new African morning news show. You can listen to the last episode of Network Africa HERE.
In other current events, this week marked the second week in Ramadan, the holiest month on the Islamic lunar calendar. Muslims have been observing this month by fasting from dawn to dusk, observing nightly prayers, and making various personal sacrifices. An around the world theme of it will be coming to in Zee breeze so look out!
As always, I love you for reading,
Foreign Affairs with YOUR PRINT on it.
