Author: Milan

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. Budget of the National Security Agency: US$7.5 billion

    Budget of the entire judicial branch: US$6.7 billion

  2. I rember the overwhelming sensation while reading Fugitive Pieces was a compulsion to lick the pages…literally…her writing was that good.

  3. Lindi,

    The writing is certainly beautiful, but the book is also very tragic. I found that I could only get through it a few pages at a time, interspersed with other reading.

  4. It is an odd thing when you combine such beauty with tragedy. Have you seen the film “Fateless”? It is a Hungarian film based on Imre Kertesz’s book by the same title – it is a similarly beautiful film (cinematographically) combined with the most honest account of the Holocuast I have ever seen on film. Highly recommend it. The Hungarian title is Sorstalanság
