When I three years ago chose to take a bachelor in spanish there were two thoughts in my head that made me take that decision. I might be able to comunicate in a whole new language after this, and I will probably and hopefully get to travel far far away and see things I will never be able to see in Europe. And those two things will make it all worth it, even though I will have to study something else afterwards, even though I will have three years of student loan extra on my back, even though people look at me and say "why. During my stay here traveling is what I like most, and the short visits to other cities have given me a lot - but what I have been looking forward to the whole time is to leave central Mexico and head for the coast, the beaches, the maya culture,... My first idea was to use all 17 days traveling around Mexico, but money, getting everything organized, and coordination with other students finally limited the trip to a total of 8 days, which I also found decent. we decided to cooperate with Nancy and Gustavo like the year before when we did trips to Michoacan and Xilitla. After quite a bit of planning, trying to satisfy everyones wishes having to do with private economy, time spent at the beach compared to time spent at other locations, fitting the trip to other planned trips etc.
Filled with wisdom, humour, and heartbreaking moments of despair produced by unending months of round-the-clock torture, the memoir was classified secret, becoming the subject of a six-year legal battle for its release. At the time, he was subject to an RCMP/CSIS “disruption” campaign of harassment: two cameras were implanted in the wall of his Montreal room, and he was followed in an obvious manner “to give the message that we are watching you. ” Slahi’s very first interrogation was at the hands of the RCMP, and “I was scared to hell” as he was questioned about a fellow Montrealer he’d never met: Ahmed Ressam, who was eventually convicted in the U. S. for a “Millennium Plot” to bomb the... Flying home to Mauritania, Slahi was intercepted and twice detained at the behest of U. S. officials, first in Senegal and then Mauritania, repeatedly interrogated about alleged involvement in the Millennium Plot. In one 2000 Mauritanian interrogation, Slahi recalled that things seemed to be going smoothly, “but when they opened the Canadian file, things soured decidedly.
The stories that we hear or share shape our personalities – they grant us an opportunity to think and go beyond the realms of the real world. We all, I guess, are stories narrated by a doting parent to a sleepy child. A happy ending indeed, for the tired parent, the overactive yet sleepy child, and for the story. Being a father to a child who insists on hearing a story before he sleeps is not easy. My four-year-old prefers a story over a lullaby because a) I am not a good singer, and b) Because through stories, he gets new characters to play with. however, his insistence on hearing a story before he sleeps keep my creative juices flowing. I must confess though that it is easy to create a story than feeling wretched about denying my little one the joy of listening to one. Here comes the VibsGyan: Parenting a child is no child’s play. One of the ways in which I enjoy the most exhausting yet rewarding journeys of my life as a parent is by creating my own slices of immortality through the make-believe world of stories. By publishing my stories here, I am granting my extempore stories immortality, so that when my son growsup, he knows the importance of stories and the experiences he and his baba shared together.
