Mókus’ adventures

 

While the initial idea of this blog was centered around the dictmókus project (click to get clarity on all the squirrel-references), it has since developed to my personal blog about my ‘adventures’ in different parts of the world. Other than typical travel – or journal-like blogs I link my experiences to my Political Science background and analyze and explore political and societal trends, and issues through my personal observations. This ranges from climate change in Central Asia to my ideas about hijabsyouth policy of the United Nations or international development trends, always with some squirrels in between and some glimpses into the places I live of course!
I hope that some of you will find some of these things as interesting as I do and I appreciate any comments, ideas and criticism!  Let’s get it started then:
