It's hard to believe, but today marks the first anniversary of independence for the Republic of Kosova. That means it's been nearly a year since our visit to see Steve the Lawyer in the World's Newest Country. Steve has handled his year in Pristina like a champ, and I've been a one-woman tourist promotion board for Kosovo ever since the trip. (Seriously. You should go. It's cheap, fun, and beautiful. And they LOVE America.)
What lies ahead for the people of the Republic? More international recognition would help their cause, as would getting things settled down in the divided city of Mitrovica. And, you know, establishing control over the north. Details.
Maybe I should teach in my KLA t-shirt today. Then again...
