Sunday Smack

Spread the love

Happy Sunday everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

As you might noticed, I was a little stuck with the blog last week. To be honest, I do want to make some changes for some time now. The problem is, I do know what I want to see here, how I want it to be, I am just not quite sure how to get there. Please bare with me while I figure it out, I promise to keep this thing up with good content all the while.

One thing never changes though, and that’s my enthusiasm towards world affairs. Next week is going to be an exciting one if everything goes as planned for the Syria peace talks in Montreux. And there is one more event in Switzerland to look forward to: the World Economic Forum in Davos kicks off on Monday.

But, before all that, let’s take a look back at some stories of last week for a bit.
