I think I’ve been aiming too low. Satisfying myself with writing books, and getting hits to my blog, enjoying some freebies and hospitality when I’m abroad, and having 272 followers via Twitter and 242 facebook friends, most of whom I don’t know. With my brains and looks, I should have control of a city. Not just any city. One in the Baltic states, I would prefer. One where they still have some old Soviet tanks laying around, and where the memory of Stalin means there is still some respect for politicians. I want to be like this Lithuanian mayor, who took more than slight umbrage over German cars parked in his Lithuanian bike lanes. Regular readers may recall how last week I was asking around for a free cargo bike. Forget that. Now I want Riga, or Tallinn, or Minsk. Am willing to learn new languages. I just need your help with some leads to Eastern Europeans of influence.
