The Week: 4th – 10 July

Winter Evening Lake Burley Griffin Canberra Australia Sonya Heaney 9th July 2016

^^^^ Terrible, terrible picture on my old camera from the car yesterday evening. We were driving over the lake in Canberra. My proper camera broke immediately after we got off the plane in Canberra, after two months away – perfect timing! However, I REALLY need to buy a new one.

Rex Burmese Cat Cute

I learnt something sad yesterday. Rex, the cat who has been living at our neighbours’ house, but who adopted US around Christmas, is going to a new home on Thursday. It’s going to be weird to not wake up with him asleep on top of me, and to not spend my days trying to type with a cat on my lap! He’s such a dope.

Obama has announced he will be sending 1000 troops to Poland in a NATO agreement, which is a start in recognising Russian aggression – even if it is years too late to help Ukraine!

Scary law Vladimir Putin passed the other day, which will come into effect on the 20th of July. People in Russia are no longer allowed to practice their religion outside churches. You cannot even mention religion at home! There are only four mosques for about two million Muslims around Moscow at the moment (Russian authorities have refused to let them build more), and so people have been practicing their religion in public spaces. Judaism, Catholicism, Islam, Protestantism, and even Mormonism are effectively being banned, with only the Russian Orthodox Church supported.
