You won't believe what happened!

~ Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change ~

A new and very positive social trend has been catching on in Berlin, Germany. A group called "Random Change Pocketeers" pick foreign tourists at random and slip change into their purses, bags or pockets while they are busy admiring the sights or eating Turkish food. The group's founder, Klaus Böckler said in a recent interview for Der Spiegel: "Wir sind am Gewinn beteiligt." We have not been able to reach Mr. Böckler for comment in English, so we can't really tell you what he meant by saying "Wir sind am Gewinn beteiligt."
The ultimate thrill: waiting for the German verb.


Polish President Hanka Bielicka flew to Tajikistan to visit the Polish troops who are building sanitation facilities in the city of Gharm. In a televised interview for "Teleexpress" she praised the troops' efforts by saying: "Our brave boys and girls are doing a wonderful job here in Tajikistan. By helping the people of Gharm in a very tangible way, they are showing the world that lack of wars is not an excuse to be oblivious to other nations' needs. We can all be very proud of them. The sanitation facilities they've built are just as beautiful and functional as the ones we have in Warsaw." Ms. Bielicka will be returning to Warsaw tomorrow.

Bulgaria continues to release more movies than any other country in the world. Virtually every weekend a new Bulgarian production hits movie screens all over the world. "Far From Kurdzhali" is a new chick-flick from the director of "Stop, Or My Grandma Will Sneeze", Hristo Stoichkov. The movie is a deliciously romantic story about an insecure fisherman who falls in love with a young elementary school teacher. The plot deepens when the teacher's father falls for the fisherman's aunt, and the aunt falls for the teacher's father's brother, who in turn... well, we don't want to spoil it for you. Let's just say that "Far From Kurdzhali" is a must for every Stoichkov fan. The Hills of Plovdiv, where the largest Bulgarian movie maker has its studios, enjoys a steady influx of tourists from all over the globe.
The Hills of Plovdiv
In Bulgaria, shaking the head from side to side means yes and nodding up and down means no.
Here is the latest news from the world's most watched sport. Algerian curling champion, Djamel Benyelles proved again that he has no equal this season. During the men's world championship competition which has just concluded in Santa Clara, Cuba, Benyelles was curling beautifully and beat his biggest opponent Adam Marysz from Poland. The victory gave him the world champion title for the sixth time in a row. Benyelles is reported to have signed a contract with the Finnish car maker "Volkia", which will make him one of the three richest athletes in the world. Despite losing to the Algerian champ, Adam Marysz made over seven million pesos this year.
