Greetings from England and Happy Easter!
I have been in England for the past two weeks and there seems to be just two main topics of conversation: First and foremost, is the story about the former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia, which could have come straight from a James Bond film. The father and daughter were found slumped on a bench in a shopping centre in Salisbury, a quaint, medieval cathedral city in the southern English county of Wiltshire. It turned out that both of them had been poisoned by the military-grade nerve gas, novichok. It goes without saying, that many locals were terrified that they had also been contaminated with the nerve gas, and people who had been in the shopping centre, or the restaurant, where Sergei had taken his daughter, were told to get rid of their clothes and go to the nearest hospital for a check up.
