I am still in Bonn. I went to Dresden, then I came back, moved into a flat with three German people, started working in the radio section and went on a little trip to Amsterdam. Home internet is now officially buggered, owing to a faulty router we think.

I am sitting in my office now, which I have to myself because I am on the late shift, and watching CNN. I have finished a story on paedophile priests and watching Dubya address the UN General Assembly. In the main office an energetic discussion is taking place on Burma v. Myanmar - what is it called? The BBC says Burma, but the German Foreign Ministry says Myanmar.

I quite like the late shift (4pm till midnight). It is very quiet and you are often sent home early, and paid extra for working late. The 7am shift is hell - rush, rush, rush and some urgent thing to report on for 9am and I never get away on time.

I have a secret, a good one. I hope I can share it soon - until then, a giant head from Münster Platz in Bonn.

Well, I've been away. But I'm back now - proper post coming soon. In the meantime, Amsterdam.
