Well, today is the day of the International Compact with Iraq here in Stockholm. This should be quite an interesting day. Over 100 countries are taking part, which is a good thing. However, I can’t help but think of one thing: the traffic.
How will little, charming, lovely Stockholm handle the motorcades of so many cabinet level folks from around the world, including the one and only Secretary Rice (WARNING. I’m a Condi fan. Love it or like it, I can’t help but admire where she’s come from and what she’s become. She’s black, female, and grew up in the southern US. When it comes to beating the odds, she’s a super lottery jackpot winner in my book)? I don’t know how many of you have seen the motorcades of heads of state, but they can be a tad bit intruding. Typically it’s because traffic is stopped so they can drive quickly through towns and cities to their destinations. And there are surely good security reasons why this is the case, but that won’t stop the frustration. In any case, this out to be an interesting day.
Stay tuned! 😉
