This Week’s Wandering News

  • In this shrinking world, new conundrums – both intricate and mundane – confront us daily. For Joyce Hor-Chung Lau of the International Herald Tribune‘s Paris Globespotters blog, it was seeking out the perfect French restaurant for her lactose intolerant Chinese parents; her observations create a comic narrative on how dining-cultures collide.
  • If you want proof of how pollution has become a truly global crisis, a team of Belgian scientists say you need only look at the Penguin Guano.
  • Blogger FiftyViss reports that a decade after Burma joined with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), little progress has been made.
  • Even as tourists trickle in to the Eastern European capital, recently-polled citizens of Budapest say they aren’t so satisfied with their city.
  • Australian Paula Constant is hoping to be the first woman to trek the Sahara by foot – but even in the oblivion of endless dunes, political strife has put a hold on her journey. Story at The Age.
