I don’t know about the rest of the world, but we have T-shirt weather! This means the news will be short and sweet, so I can go back to hanging out with the neighbours.
Speaking of which… We don’t seem to do enough neighbourly stuff in this country. Booo. I have the best neighbours.
Michael Schumacher has come out of his coma and has been transferred to another hospital. Nobody can say if that’s really all good news though, since a full recovery is unlikely.
In France, a Roma boy accused of robbery has been so badly beaten up that he is now in a coma. This story is just too unsettling, so read at your own peril.
Police in Albania have been attacked with grenades during a raid on Europe’s “cannabis capital.” Rocket-propelled grenades. Wtf.
A Turkish journalist faces jail for insulting the prime minister. Freedom of speech, you guys?
The rest of the week has been all about the weather and the football. In Germany, they call those long, news-free weeks in summer “Sauregurkenzeit.” I couldn’t even find an amusing story! Outrage! But here’s a picture of a royal baby. Nawww.
Until next week!
