Through a window into a horse. Trough I'm joined with more on this point Naomi O'Leary Europe correspondent at the Irish Times. Niamey we'll we'll discuss the detail presently, but broadly. Who's disagreeing with whom about what? The main blockage is that there's a group of wealthy northern state led by the Netherlands that want the overall package. The thunder discussion to because because. They at home have domestic electorate that think the costs too much. And The Netherlands is heading for national election next year in March, and I think it's important for Prime Minister Ruta to be able to show to his electorate that he put up a fight in Brussels though.

There changes though Britain is part of the discussion. It wouldn't have gotten so far as it has. If Britain had still been in the EU win vetoed dozen stage. I'm what's being forced to happen. Is that the states like the Netherlands and Austria kind of being forced to come with their use in a more direct way, they're not able to hide behind the opposition of Britain anymore as they have in the past, and you have alliances of smaller states rather than big blocking ones. Is it about the amount in total, or is it more about how that amount will be dispersed specifically whether it would be a grant or a loan which would need to be paid back at some future point? Yeah, it's both so there's a few things on the table. There's the common e you budget seven years. The Party Gotten Ryan to discussing then there's the recovery fund. Which is this one saw?

His name is Alex. how number stat? He was born in the Soviet Union when it was the Soviet Union and he's written. A cross between memoir and history called Young Heroes of the Soviet Union. Since I, am myself of Russian descent and I know some little about what it was like to grow. Walk in the Soviet Union. I found the book. Fascinating. When learned. In its first stone ten pages.

This grandfather once combed his hair and gave him a bath. How old were you? Then I was three months old Michael. and. You had barely spent time with your biological father because he stayed in the Soviet Union while you and your mother and your mother's parents came to America. Yes, that's right, Michael? How old were you then? I was nine years old. And where did you lands? How did it go? Well we left Moscow in the fall of nineteen, seventy nine, and after about six months Austria in Italy. We ended up in Queens County New York. In addition to all the other things. I have in common with the writer of the spoke Alex.

But it kind of you know. I found that also a little confusing because it kind of. I think in some ways overlapped with my experience of having grown up in Russia and kind of taught me about kind of the version of Russia that I was that I only got to know through books. I lived there in the nineteen seventies during the heyday of Soviet Union. You know surrounded by.

Can Tennis Stars Be Trusted to Act Responsibly? (With Reem Abulleil)
"Welcome to no challenges remaining Ben Rothenberg delighted to be joined yet again during this corona virus hiatus from the tour by NPR's middle. East correspondent remodel rim. Thanks for being back on the show once again. Thanks for having me I like this. We're spending a lotta time together. It's honestly I been one of the Nice things about life in core is like spending a lot. We're like a lot more time with friends. I think overall to add at the time, and it's time spent like talking. Even seeing if you count Zuma's seeing friends and you know even those no in person contact and I miss that miss all the normal things like there have been. That side of it's been been nice. I will say yeah, same here. Tennis was affected as last show we did which are also on when we did a show a student to. All about for breaking news reaction to Ingrain Dmitrov tested positive for the coronavirus after playing the Adria tour, and that was believed ten days ago from recording. That was on a Sunday that next Monday, we found out that other players born storage fit your choice gate also tested positive day after that we found out that Novak Djokovic she would spearhead the tour. It was his baby. He was the face of it. He had also tested positive along with his wife. Elaina and then a few days after that Gorny Beneath Mitch, who was the director of the Dr leg of the tour in Croatia, the second stop out of what I think was going to be five originally on the tour. Had also tested positive after previously testing negative twice in his first two tests, so let's start there. be the epilogue to our last episode. What did your reaction to Adria tour change at all? Between the trump positive tests which I think we knew could be the first of many and seeing these other big players in including world number-one Djokovic also test positive, and I will before authority also. We have no idea how many other people stand staff organizers media. Media, Whoever hotel workers, whoever at the around the Asia tour also tested positive? So what are your thoughts for the further fall out of I think as soon as I heard about born Torridge, which was the second that we found out about an we also heard about Gregoire's coach. Novak's physio. Those were like the first four I figured. It's not surprising if almost. Almost everybody else got it because there was just so much close contact between them. The whole time they play doubles together. They party together. They did so like it's. It's not surprising so by the time. Yeah, like after after the second wave of tests, I felt like I expected the pretty much everyone positive so actually I was more surprised at the negatives tests. Tests than the alternative ones, but I think the the biggest thing that stands out obviously for me. In terms of the different thing is that Goran tested negative twice and then tested positive, so that kind of gave us more Obviously, we know that that can happen, but the fact that everyone who was kind of defending the tour. Everyone who is getting? Everyone. Who thinks that oh? If I'm negative? I can go play another tournament. Someone like another term all that stuff that kind of with Goran testing positive. I guess it was A. Kind of a cautionary tale for everybody else guys happened with Goran I think I think it is a really useful real world example honestly. We know about this incubation timely theoretically, but hearing someone like around been a little bit stride into the beginning. He was the one who is announcing it on court. Instead Darwin the tournament was stopping there or when the event was stopping in Chicago. Tournament when the event was. Stop there, saying Hey, don't blame me, I. Don't have coronavirus. It's not you know I didn't do it. Essentially it was. Sort of said somewhat ingest on court at when he was sentenced. Georgia Jovovich, that's the cancellation and see him. Yeah, that's positive. Eventually the show like yes, we know intellectually seeing a real world. Example of someone had not delayed time. Yeah, it does does make realize. Hey, you really. That's why we're doing. The fourteen days stay inside where people are doing that. When they possibly exposed or other things to make sure they don't have it incubating and yeah. THAT GETS TO DONALD team a start with him. I think there's. Say That team. The team comes up from. Adria tour and goes to play the UPS. Just the ultimate showdown event held the more Academy in France. And he gets tested upon arriving. There tested multiple times there from what he was saying in. He makes a joke that he's the interviews. The his most negative guy on tour which some people thought was in poor taste. Honestly have demonstra problem with understood it. If you've been had blood drawn six times in a week if you're allowed to make a joke about it. It, but at the same time I don't know. He's playing and I wish he was not playing. I. Just don't think it's worth the risk for having candidate playing tennis. If I was holding tennis admit that had previously booked dominic team I would say sorry, but we're gonNA. Cancel your appearance of the tournament. We don't want anyone who's been clearly exposed to the. gorgias stick corona virus cauldron. That was Adria tour to come here I. think that just negative within the window is not enough to show that you're not possibly caring and or contagious we we've done that now. Seeing team, go from the the ups to pull out of that to go to various other events and he. He's scheduled to play Austria an accident going to go play in Germany after that I. it just seems like he's just trying his. He's really working overtime. Trying to be patient zero as possible.

Why Was a Doctor Once Ridiculed for Recommending Hand Washing?
"Even, when there isn't a pandemic gone, we all know were supposed to wash our hands especially before we eat or after we've touched something gross, but that wasn't always the case. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, a doctor was mocked for even suggesting that physicians wash their hands before working with patients, and that dear listener is how we begin the strange and sad story of Nets, some of ice, a nineteenth century doctor sometimes called the father of infection control. them vice was born in Hungary in eighteen, eighteen and graduating medical school. He started a job at Vienna. General Hospital in Austria in eighteen forty six there there. He became a gas to the mortality rate of new mothers in one of the hospitals wards. In this ward up to eighteen percent of new mothers were dying from what was then called child, bed, fever or pure berle fever. We know today that this is a fever caused by infection of the reproductive or urinary tract in new mothers? Yet another of the hospital's wards where midwives instead of doctors delivered all of the babies, only about two percent of mothers died of this then mysterious fever. similize vice began reasoning his way to the root of the problem. He considered climate and crowding, but eventually ruled those factors out in the end. The midwives themselves seems to be the only real difference between the two wards. Then Zuma vice had an epiphany one of the hospitals doctors, a pathologist accidentally nicked himself the scalpel that hit used during an autopsy of one of these unfortunate mothers. The doctor was sick and with child bed fever and he died. Zamel vice made the connection that doctors were performing autopsies on patients who died of child, had fever, and then immediately afterward going to deliver babies without stopping to wash their hands. He suspected that this was the source of the deadly problem. We spoke by with Dana Towards e eski philosophy professor at Purdue University whose name I hope I'm pronouncing correctly. She explained, basically has hypothesis here was that it was cadaveric matter from scalpels, the entered the pathologists blood, and caused the infection and same material could be transferred to the women on the hands of the doctors, because the doctors do autopsies, and then go straight to examine the women who had given birth without washing their hands, changing their clothes, or basically taking any hygienic measures at all, he then tested this hypothesis by requiring people who had performed autopsies to wash their hands with chloride of lime, a disinfectant before attending the weapon and this, the mortality rate in the first clinic fell to that of the second. You'd think that some of fellow doctors would have lauded him for this discovery, but you'd be wrong. You see in the eighteen forties. Germ theory hadn't been conceived yet. That's the theory that diseases are caused by organisms, not visible to the naked eye and people still suspected the diseases transferred from one person to another via toxic. Not Bacteria or viruses, this was called miasma theory in washing their hands. They probably wanted to be rid of whatever was causing a bad. Not to kill germs that might wreak havoc on them or someone else. We also spoke by email, but Michael Melanson, an adjunct professor of medicine at. University he said physicians of Vices. Time simply did not understand or believe that something microscopic could be wreaking such havoc on their patients. They literally believed their own is less. We feel too smug. Consider how many people currently embrace a lack of COVID, nineteen deaths among people like me geographically racially economically or otherwise as evidence that scientists are overestimating the pandemics risk. Better hand washing regimens dramatically improved death rates at the maternity ward, but some vices colleagues were at best miffed at the implication that their ignorance was killing their own patients, and perhaps implication that midwives were better at delivering babies than they were. It didn't help that Zimmer Vice essentially laid the deaths of the wards mothers at the feet of his superiors. His own supervisor countered that the hospitals new ventilation system must be the reason for the decline in maternity deaths. Also, Zimbabwe's was a Hungarian in Austria A. Working in country in the throes of xenophobia. So those doctors rejected his theories and some of ice himself as being inferior, they opted to stick with their miasma theory, and for good measure in eighteen, forty nine did not renews vices appointment. As vice eventually got a medical position in Budapest where he according to the British Medical Journal quote publicly harangued doctors nurses about hand, washing and reduced maternal mortality. He eventually published a book on the subject some fourteen years later, but it was poorly written and poorly received. Possibly, experiencing mental disorder or extreme stress from his rejection by the medical establishment, Zim of ice ended up a patient in an asylum in eighteen sixty five weeks later, he was dead of an infection from a wound that he received in the facility. She was just forty seven years old. similize left behind monumental legacy, but the tragedy of his story has made it Garner a few minutes. One of those being that demo vice was the first suggested theory about doctors transmitting germs. Kaletsky said he wasn't really a pioneer. Other people before Zamel vice had hit upon the idea that child bed fever could be transmitted from doctor or midwife to patient for example Alexander Gordon of Aberdeen showed in Seventeen Ninety. Five child had fever was almost always transmitted by doctors or midwives, and also that it was connected to a kind of streptococcal skin rash. He also thought that the best treatment was copious bleeding.

"The small town of tonight Washington population just below two thousand has been hit hard by the covid nineteen pandemic, and has come up with a unique solution printing their own money. With local businesses nearly abandoned and lines at the Food Bank, winding around the corner, Mayor Wayne for near had to act fast to bolster the economy and help. Residents stay afloat. Quoting the hustle, and then it hit him. Why not start our own currency? The plan came together fast for near decided that tonight nine would set aside ten thousand dollars to out to low income residents hurt by the pandemic, but instead of using federal dollars he'd print the money on thin sheets of wood designed exclusively for use into nine. Oh his mint, a one hundred thirty year old newspaper Printer from a local museum for new, Year's central idea is pulled straight from tonight does own history during the Great Depression? The city printed sets of wooden dollars using that exact same eighteen ninety newspaper printer within a year the wooden currency had helped bring the economy back from the dead and quotes. You can see that newspaper Printer in action in a five year old youtube video I stumbled across when I was looking up how to pronounce the town's name. The new currency, which has a really cool design including, George Washington's face, some Latin that translates to we've got this handled and a bat symbol is worth twenty five dollars per wooden bill. The currency works. Quotes. Residents below the poverty line can apply to receive money from the ten thousand dollar fund that nine has set aside for near, says they also have to prove that the pandemic has impacted them, but we're pretty open to what that means. Once they're approved, they can pick up their stipends printed in wooden notes worth twenty five dollars each the city is capping the amount. Each resident can accrue at twelve wooden notes or three hundred dollars per month. Spending comes with a few restrictions. Residents can't use the money to buy cigarettes, lottery, tickets or alcohol. The currency is designed for the essentials including food gas in daycare. Almost every business in town accepts the wouldn't notes and twice a month they can submit redemption requests to the city to turn the notes into cash and quotes. The big thing you may be wondering though is why not just give out real federal cash? The answer quotes by creating its own local currency. keeps the money in the community as four near puts it. Amazon will not be accepting wooden dollars. The, money stays in the city. It doesn't go out to Walmart and Costco and all those places says Joyce Worrell, who has run the antique shop ironworks Boutiques for the past decade closing down businesses these last few months. World says a catastrophe for a lot of us, but she has rallied around the wooden currency as a way to revitalize the local economy after all that worked out for the city once before and quotes. Tonight wasn't the only town to make its own currency during the great. Depression, although it may have been the most famous quote during the Great Depression, local currencies saw a golden age hundreds of municipalities, business, associations and worker co OPS started issuing scripts. One estimate suggests as much as one billion dollars worth of scripts circulated in the US in the nineteen thirties and quotes. So, might we see this trend bubble up again? It's actually already started happening around the world towns in Italy Brazil and Mexico have created various forms of local currency to bolster their economies during the pandemic. Does it really work to help. Businesses and residents stay on their feet, though quoting again take the Austrian town of verbal, which launched its own schilling in nineteen, thirty, two to keep residents, spending verbal appended a one percent monthly fine when residents held onto the notes by nineteen thirty-three, each vertical schilling had circulated four hundred sixty three times more than double the circulation rate of Austria's national currency mortals unemployment dropped by twenty five percents, even while unemployment continued to balloon throughout the rest of the country end quote.
Germany aims to reopen borders - what you need to know
"We're going to head across the board or to Germany now a border which opens officially on Monday the country has been praised for its handling of covid nineteen, but Deutschland Inc is immune from the impact of the virus is having on the global economy. So how can major corporations be supported by the government in Berlin I'm joined on the line from points dot in southwestern Germany by Anna Rosenberg irregular, and is the head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy cigdem global. Couldn't talk. Couldn't tack. Very good here for humanity. Oh, no is a great to have you on the program. Literally probably for the last what five or six weeks we've seen one German company after other, and these were really talking about global names that all of our our listeners will will be well aware of companies that touch people's lives Some have seemed to be sailing through this reasonably well, but we've seen of course many others and probably most the most. High. Profile instances is tons of which has been. In the news almost every day for the last two weeks on on business pages around the world, and with a lot of focus right now on major job layoffs that will probably see before their AGM it in the coming weeks. I'm very keen to hear how the story is playing out domestically, though because I think outside of Germany Anna everyone of course is seeing a similar type of story, the relating to how daylights bailouts might occur in Australia or Canada or elsewhere, but I. If we look at the front pages, if we look at what's being, said on the tag, a show how I would say sort of what is the mood and the reception nationally right now? I would say that, of course luther tons is a concern, but it's not the biggest concern I think that the German government has over the past few weeks, a lot of the things right and of course at the moment top of mind for everyone is the recently announced fiscal stimulus package, which is another one hundred thirty billion euros, and to support Jimmy consumers and business, and that's I would say currently preoccupying people's minds business all relief by the measures announced and I think that's overtaken the bad news from Lufthansa. Also you have to keep in mind that. Lufthansa was bailed out. Even though they are still of course, suffering, huge job losses, overall, there are some positive signs, and I would say that. Combined with the opening up of the economy, those all being well received. We've seen a consumer sentiment reports out of Germany as well, and and certainly there was a feeling a little bit early on that. Maybe people's fears were a little bit misplaced still fearful but if you look at the mood now, and whether that is just your read, for from where you're sitting, at of course how your consultant he looks at it. As much is of course what might be popping? Popping up in the pages of Honda's Blot you look at a stimulus right now. There's going to be cash handouts for families and a lot of money for every child. Does this raise the mood? And of course whatever economy looks at is consumer sentiment in terms of getting out onto the High Street shopping filling up grocery baskets. All of those things. Where where would you say the consumer mindset is right now? I think the consumer mindset is cautiously optimistic. Very cautious because I think that, it's not yet quite clear how this crisis will ultimately pan out. There's a realization that Germany is a relative. Winner or let's say not too bad loser from Kobe than other countries it's has. Done more than others in terms of trying to contain the disease, the government has stepped up significant economic measures as I mentioned before so those things at Kohl's obviously provide cause for optimism, and I think the the the money that the government will be handing out for child support another three hundred euros, plus lowering the VAT. All of that will stimulate consumer spending but I think it's too early. You're not going to see suddenly. Suddenly consumers go out and shop like crazy. Ultimately, these still cautious Jim and consumers that going to want to continue to monitor how plays out and I think once there is confidence that things won't get much worse. That's when you're going to see consumers. Step up spending I do expect this to happen over the next few weeks and months, and especially over the summer, because that's also when you just have a pickup optimism generally. Do! You think there's also maybe a patriotism wave, and that's a it's a tricky word in in Germany or at least in some corners at wet, better patriotism when it comes to a head Shelton, Deutsche signed a made a made in Germany feeling. Of course you can go to lots of grocery stores. Local markets and people want to of course singing, the praises of the of the Chicago this Baragan that's grown around the. The Corner, etc, but does that also extend you think elsewhere in in in consumer spending that people are are going to be thinking about jobs in Germany. It might be a little bit more expensive for me to buy that product, but it is made in Germany I. See that it is going to help the state that I live in or the state next door or is going to be driven by WHO's got the best price. It depends on your income. I would say I think that consumers that have a little bit of leeway will make those conscious decisions. They will buy local whenever possible I think. That's a trend that was here before. Kobe ticket buying local, being more environmentally conscious, making sure that your products don't have a very large carbon footprint that was here before and I would expect that consumers that are wealthy enough to afford to make these choices will continue to make these choices, but of course those that are going to be squeezed. They will not be able to. They're going to go for the cheapest option, and there will be quite a few of those as well so I. Think it'll be a mixed mixed back really and just before we go. We just maybe shining a spotlight on Berlin and certainly foreign policy a you and I have touched on. Whether the dock countries Germany Austria Switzerland are are looking to maybe come together a little bit and and show that there is there leadership even though these countries are also very disjointed in many ways, but is there a sense that you Berlin you now? I mean really also being recognized almost daily around. The world is having done a very good job, Switzerland and Austria as well that they. They start to convene big MESSA again. Of course, when when public health obviously issues and public health guidelines allow, because it certainly seems on many other levels Germany is trying to push ahead, but does it see itself as also being a commercial convener sooner rather than later because we've seen so many are still being so I mean I wouldn't say pessimistic, but maybe some would argue in business overly cautious. I think there's a big. Division in terms of the states in Germany about this topic. I would imagine that if you now see. Infection rates stay low over the summer which we expect we, we do think this going to potentially be another wave in the autumn, but if things go more or less smoothly over the summer, it's going to be difficult to continue to extend lockdown measures, and instead people will cool for more openings and eventually also call for mass gatherings, and I think that's what you can see things like larger messy mess, being organized again and large public offerings coming together, but I think we'll still a bit way from this, and I don't expect it necessarily to accelerate in this first half and second half of the year really. On Rosenberg from CIGDEM global in Germany very good to speak.

Trains from the Czech Republic from Prague directly through to the Croatian coast to be precise, the city of the reactor, which is actually one of the European capitals of culture this year, and from they'll be able to get connections to any of your coastal destinations, and this is a big deal. It's a big. Big Deal for people in the Czech Republic because eight hundred thousand of them every year. Go on holiday in Croatia apparently, the the advertising in in the Czech. Republic refers to Croatia as aw coast so quite proprietorial about it. They are number seven in terms of tourist arrivals in Croatia, so it's not an exaggeration, really but it's also a big deal for Croatia.

Croatia on a mission to save the summer from coronavirus
"Why don't WANNA use the would post covert yet? That sounds too optimistic but nonetheless. Some encouraging news from Croatia Croatia has been very keen to get it some a holiday season on some sort of track. I hesitate to say back on track but it's trying to salvage the summer season and as part of that today it's opening its borders at two people from ten different European Union and handily. This includes pretty much all of its major tourism markets Austria Germany Slovakia and the Czech Republic. They're all allowed to now to enter Croatia for holidays People from Slovenia were already being allowed in so between all of those countries. You've pretty much got I. Think about seventy percent of the tourists who had Croatia over the summer season and the the tourism season is terrifically important cratia because it provides about twenty percent of the country's GDP and almost all of the visitors arrive in July and August. It's very very heavily. Weighted towards summit to getting people on the beaches in Istria and Dalmatia.

The the donation coast is You know as you well know an absolutely glorious part of the will travel in. It's it's excellent news. That people will be able to do it. But how carefully is Croatia being about this because obviously when you welcome people into your country right now you potentially welcome covid? Nineteen right along with them. Yeah and that's a really big thing for Croatia. Because it had some of the most the tightest restrictions of any European country in the time of its when it declared an epidemic inside Croatia It was very restricted. In terms of how creation people could move inside that country even inside their own cities and so opening up the country as it is now obviously does bring risk. So what they've done is they've chosen the country's Catholic. You will note. That Serbia is noticeably absent from the list of ten countries. Which is it's opening its border. Stay it's got a website called into Croatia on which people can enter their details whether they've been in contact with anybody with covid nineteen with they've recovered from its own and so forth all of this meant to firstly ease the passage of people into the country but also enable contact tracing if the raw outbreaks and we've seen recently for example a plane arrived from Frankfurt and Croatians are grab More than a dozen passengers and crew ended up testing positive the COVID nineteen but on arrival they all given contact details so very quickly The authorities were able to track trace and and snuff any sort of outbreaks out before they got a chance to get going and they're going to have to take this approach on a much larger scale.

"But here you have a more classically western country. It's far right? Party openly admitting that has it has a thorn -tarian pro Russian leanings. I in a way that's remarkable. I mean now the video was secret. So it wasn't open, but it's openly. Yes. Open now and it to me, this is the heart of the particular far-right moments that were living in broadcast on international television for everybody to say. And so this is where I'm interested about what what's going to happen next. I mean here in Australia, again, just to reiterate a point sack made is like they will all say, even experts here, Nostra will say look were a small country, like it's not really going to reverberate elsewhere. And yet, you do already see a lot of these far-right leaders around Europe, like completely ignoring this Austrian scandal on purpose when they're pressed on it. They are trying to. Get away from it. And so what I'm interested to see will happen here in Austria is like the future of just the Freedom Party doesn't make a comeback. Or is it kind of dead for a while? And if it will dent this, you know, far right eurosceptic project happening throughout the continent, that you could imagine that, you know, even as the Germans would say, like all right, fine. That's happening in Austria. But like people around the, the continent or reading about this scandal, they are seeing that, obviously is just one party here. But maybe this is a general feeling among these far right parties. And so do I think it's going to lead to a complete collapse of the ideology on the continent. Absolutely not. That's likely going to continue going forward. But if it stalls the progress, even a little bit while that would be a quite big development from this alone. All right.

So what's his deal? He was the vice chancellor, of Austria, basically, the number two, and he headed the Freedom Party, which is the far right party here in Austria. And is really among the most successful far-right parties in all of Europe. It has. It's pretty bad origins, including being founded by basically SS officers so having close ties to Nazis and over the course of its time in Austrian politics. It has done things to become a bit more accepted within the country, but it's still quite xenophobic. It's anti Muslim anti immigrant anti elite, and of course, very populous, so it's basically turned into a modern day far right?

So they were in a coalition government before as recently as the two thousand but their biggest success of note since then was in the two thousand seventeen election, the mainstream conservative party, the People's Party won the most seats in parliament, but it wasn't enough to govern alone. Right. So the way the government works in Austria is that you have to basically build a coalition with other parties. If you don't get enough of the votes to have a majority yourself. So people's part. Wins a bunch of seats in parliament, but they have to work with other parties. So they pick this far right? Austrian Freedom Party, and that's their buddy, that's their partner in the coalition government and the People's Party, the one that won the most votes is led by a guy named Sebastian Kurz. He's young. He's in his thirties. He's been pretty tough on immigrants in the past. So he kind of already adopted like a lot of the Freedom Party's can afar right rhetoric during the campaign so we can invade sense for them to be like natural allies, so they formed a coalition. He is one of the world's youngest heads of state. It makes me feel a little bit unaccomplished given that he gets to run a government at around my age..

"But also they had to stop focusing on sweet wines, and they had to sort of start from scratch and start to make really really good natural wines with no funny business, and they had all this time to do that. So now, you know, the really strong winds coming out of Austria are dryer reds and dry whites. I mean to me that's a story with a very happy ending. Yeah. I'll say it again, fuck sweet wine and not a fan either. So that was the wine part of the trip. You did a bit of a road map for how do we experience Austrian wine? Sure, the route that I took around Australia, which was divided into three trips of a few days each I did sort of go from west to east starting from his far away from Vienna. As you can get and then coming back, and there is this. There's a really great place to go for wine. I mean, there's a it's called a how it's basically a few miles along the Danube and is just got town. After town of hugely historical vineyards and wines, and people can quite easily drive that in a day and drink some wine, and or, you know, get a boat on the Danube. These are seriously old vineyards, they're famous for being incredibly steep, and really uneven sort of really kind of medieval looking, and there's castles a live at the place as well. Wine stuff. This came from the Romans, right? Yes. So I believe that the Celts had been doing something with wine before that. But the Romans really can have made it into cultivated products. They imported the ones middle the Danube valley has been a wine producing area for very long time. So all right. Get yourself to Vienna to the Vauxhall designated boat. Captain, then go from winery row winery. Among all the castles done. I'm ready for it. You had to other spirits that were sort of your guide posts for this. Kind of trip around Austria, you had beer and you had whiskey. Why whiskey and where did you find it and is an Austrian good question? So I've been speaking about this trip with a few people former Austrian dwellers who'd maybe laughter come back and someone did bring up whiskey, and I remember seeing a bottle of whiskey in the airport. A couple of times in thinking. Wow, that's probably pretty nasty. I just did some digging into turns out there is a very very, you know, sort of small that blossoming whiskey seen the whiskey is happening in the forest quarter in the eastern part of the country. That's an actual name. Yes. The Austria has these of regions of agricultural goodness. This like a wine quarter and a forest quarter. Within those sections this parts famous for making grape juice in this parts famous for making wine. So the vote fatalist they call it is where all the whisky action is happening. But it seems to be that most of these places are. People who already have a brewery or schnapps distillery so schnapps as the, you know, the really strong fruit brandy that you get from Austria to Romania beyond whiskies just really big right now globally..

"Not just because of the Austria connection. But. We are taught from young age to be very suspicious of ostentatious flag-waving, which is obviously something that happens in a lot of places, but it's felt strange to be on his, you know, in terms of how I feel being Australian ish. I think it's given me a real insight into being European growing up on the continent. And having these neighboring countries that are different, but you still kind of understand how they work, and when you go to the UK, which is from a from the US perspective in Europe. But really isn't. It's completely different in the mindset. And you know, obviously, we're seeing this with Brexit and all that that kind of stuff. So I would say that being Austrian Ishmaelites me feel European but not necessarily Austrian. So I was fascinated by this idea because I think I often have that feeling slightly different women you're thinking about leaving Austria for an extended period of time and you've been back there. Now, how many years I'd say it's off and on about two years road trip is like kind of that way to run your mind over the features of a country. And that's basically what you wanted to do in Austria sort of like, let me remember this place. Probably learn a little bit. About it before I had out. I think you had a very sensible approach, which is let's do this road trip as a series of different kinds of alcoholic beverages. Right. I very lucky that I managed to find something on the set of whiskey front beer fears everywhere near you weren't going to be able to do the Austria Moscow crawl no credibility. What they do. Have is a does a substance cold most, which is essentially the fermented wine grape juice before it's wine, but beyond grape juice, it tastes like grape soda, but it's actually pretty alcohol IQ, and it's very dangerous because people underestimate how much they're having. But there is such a thing as the most corridor for pears apples. But it was the wrong season. Okay. I couldn't do that. I did want to write about wine because that's the geography that I know. I mean, that's where I grew up. I grew up in a part of China that produces one, you know, my my life was very much. Dictated by that. That's what people did certain times of year. The first restaurant. I ever went to probably was one of those wine taverns, it's been there for centuries, and we had very good family friends who are actually from wine producing section as well about an hour west. And so we used to go pick wine with them, and they were from a very small town where they were not actually fulltime winemakers anymore. But this town of two thousand people almost every family had vineyards left or the really old wine cellar because it's not a place where it's just in the fabric of their lives. And so that to me was Austria. All right. Well, let's start with wine then so you were in the neighborhood. And this is something that's actually that. You've taught me that's quite special at the end. It's the only capital city in Europe that has like winemaking within its limits. The official line is that it's the only one with significant amount of wine produced in its city limits, and that seven hundred hectares, I think you are you would find some places in Germany and Switzerland do but it's. On to the same scale. I don't wanna drink Berlin Wall. So they have two parts of the northwest and northeast, which are actually the very very end of the elps if you look at a map of relief map of Alps, the very very last set of hill just stretches into the Anna. And that's where the wine is it grows on these hills of China. And we'll I I wanted to talk about wine at some point..

And we're in Russia because we are doing some fact-finding for our new city guides which will be sent Petersburg and Moscow literally like a million people on sky, which is right on the corner where we are. And you really can't hear much a lot of hammer and sickles out there a lot of cool Putin t shirts, it's all the little unnerving. So I'm happy to be kind of hold up here talking about Austria, do you live in Austria? And you wrote this amazing piece that was something of a farewell to the country. We talked last year about having a series of road trips, and since I was in Austria sort of temporarily, and I was about to leave again after getting to know it as an adult probably for the first time I left when I was seventeen. So really what what fell to me was. Try to figure out a theme of what can you write about Australia? That's not super newsy and not super about chocolate cake classical music, actually, my first idea was to try to trace the borders because Australia's is one of those funny countries where wherever you are in country. It's sort of absorbed with the flavor of the country. It's next to. So there's bits that seem like Italy in bits seemed like Germany. And slovenia. And so I realized also that most of the country's borders are actually three thousand meters up in the Alps that wouldn't have worked for a huge portion you have an unusual Austrian story. You're not yourself Austrian know, essentially, my immediate family are from Austria in the sense that we were all born there. My parents met there in the nineteen sixties, and it's kind of random they weren't really supposed to be there either. My mother was a South African student in biology genetics who had been to Germany, and then sent to I think she got a job in Australia working at the medical school and doing research..

"Bryan Bryan Bryan column, so he was denied his application for seeking asylum again from Afghanistan into Austria because thority said he wasn't acting gay enough, didn't seem gay enough specifically saying his walk, his behavior and his clothing weren't gay enough. And this was from an organization with a t shirt with the dick on it pretty much. What was that a government. He was at an asylum hearing the spring and said that he, he became aware that he was queer when he was twelve and living in Afghanistan. He migrated to Austria as a minor. So imagine that he came to Austria as a minor because he was twelve years old country that would have criminalized any homosexual action he took, but couldn't they couldn't the Austrian see that? Okay. I'm not saying that gay one way if you're gay. But what I'm saying is, isn't it possible that in your own argument against why he doesn't fit your your quote unquote profile of a gay man that maybe he's had to hide who he is complete. There's a danger in being whatever you think he should be. Even people who don't hide express themselves very differently. There are people just who are free and themselves don't act quote, unquote, I guess, feminine or gay or swish e and then there some do. But yes, of course. I think he was this guy was hiding. Every move he made, I'm sure. And so this. After he applied for asylum, the document outlining the decision which was one hundred pages what? Yeah, said that it wasn't believable that he was gained. One of the quotes from the decision was neither your walk nor your behavior know your clothing, give the slightest indication that you could be gay. They reported the when he was staying with the refugees. Who were there also, Kim asylum, they reported you frequently got into fights with roommates. You clearly have the potential to be aggressive, which would not be expected in a homosexual just like sweeping, and then they said and also don't homosexuals tend to be rather sociable. I don't know about you fucking be friends with wine. Oh, exactly. Exactly. So under law, what's the ruling council who do know what the council's name that I don't, I don't, but I was to look up what they look like. But I think I got an idea. The in this in this report, it does say that homosexuality in Afghanistan is punishable from five to fifteen years in prison..
