A suitcase a year

getting things wrong

On my way from Pristina to Brussels my suitcase broke down. Always an embarrassing moment to lift a broken suitcase from the baggage carousel. Exactly a year ago I bought this red suitcase (Samsonite) in New York. Collectors can make a bid. The suitcase traveled to Australia, Europe and Africa.
On the plane I read in Tim Judah's excellent book on Kosovo, Kosovo, War and Revenge: “Getting things wrong is different from lying.” Yes, but lying is a little bit more sophisticated and entertaining than getting things wrong.
