Friends, I am not yet en route to Germany as promised. Upon arrival at the airport yesterday, I was greeted by a travel agent. His eyes widened in reaction, I think, to the growing expression of horror on my face as he told me my passport wasn’t valid. It seems that Germany (among other countries) will not allow a person entrance if their passport expires within 3 months.

I am privy to conversations happening within talks at Bonn, in this way I think I will be able to relay ongoing discussions and decisions made at the conference.
