2014 / 05 A Visit to Benghazi

It was already back in 2012 when I had visited Benghazi the last time. The city did not calm down since – the opposite: Nearly daily killings occured. It became so comon that it was harldy mentioned anymore in the media. Although the most of the people try to carry on their life as normal as possible one can feel that it is not as it should be. The week after my departure a major attack was launched agaisnt two of the Militias in the town – notably an attack which was not authorized by the Government in Tripoli.

2014 / 05 Some days in Tripoli

I had spent some days in Tripoli in the first half of May. All was calm and left a peaceful impression. Life went its normal way. The only thing noteworthy I had seen is that there is still no works going on on any of the big housing projects – they stand still since three years. A week after I had left, new fighting broke out. Not the occassional shooting but serious fighting…

2014 / 04 PayPal

From PayPal I got the following message today: “In order for us to be able to provide you with the highest level of security, PayPal customers have to register with us. For this reason, we are soon going to stop offering the ‘PayPal account not required’ option”

That means that you can only pay a book you have ordered if you have an actual PayPal account from now on. Should you not have such account and should you not want to open one – please contact me under to find out about other possible options for you.
