It’s been a busy few weeks! LSH and I had a wonderful belated honeymoon in Cuba, which I’ll definitely be writing about at some point. It’s such a beautiful, fascinating country and I can’t stop thinking about the people and places we encountered there.
I also began writing an economics column for Germany’s international broadcaster, DW. You can read the first two installments here and here.
And – most excitingly in a way – I was shortlisted for a writing prize! I didn’t win but I got to read my short story at the Irish embassy in Berlin. It was such a wonderful feeling afterwards when people in the audience spoke to me about my characters as if they were real people.
