    The U.S. has trade sanctions against Belarus? Pardon my ignorance, but who knew? As a first-gen American (Sweden) I keep up with some of the EU misdeeds–Germany has bullied itself into a great position at the expense of Southern Europe, so EU membership must seem less than appealing these days, even to applicant nations–but not as much with news of CIS (?) nations. It’s a rare day when the international section of the New York Times International Section has much news about a nation that is not our trading partner, with which we are not at war, or to which we don’t funnel aid.

    I am not an international investor–other than every time I shop, or hold an equity position in a corporation that profits from international trade–but interested in cultural, heritage, religious issues.
    My current writing is on pilgrimage (in Sweden, mainly & Northern Western Europe.) Is your part of the world also experiencing a new pilgrimage movement?
