Does Afghanistan really want its women?

A painting by German-Afghan painter Najia Hashemi

 

Women who dare to love, to pursue a career and women who refuse to be tied down by the conservative society are simply eliminated in Afghanistan.  To this day, tribal courts and the Taliban use the Sharia (Islamic law) and order punishments such as stoning and executions.  With a massive number of women falling prey to antiquated social customs, the obvious question is: does Afghanistan really want its women?

It’s time to eat!

 

It’s Christmas time in Bonn and the first thing that strikes your nostrils is the lovely smell of Christmas goodies at the local market. From spiced wine served warm in special mugs to chocolate cake with cinnamon, from roasted almonds to cotton candy, from chinese noodles to traditional german dumplings with vanilla sauce, the Christmas market is a feast for the eyes, nose…and the palate! While we went out on our own very personal round of the Christmas market in Bonn,  we decided this might just be the perfect time to organize an online cooking competition, in which you send us your best recipe.
