Opp igjen – Med Passion For Ocean

Etter at jeg brente ut kruttet i fjor har jeg ikke stått på en scene. Jeg har blitt kvalm, stressa og fått pustevansker bare av tanken.

I min nye rolle skal jegContinue reading “Opp igjen – Med Passion For Ocean”

A Shell-shocked land: Shell in the Niger Delta

Did you ever read The Other Hand (Little Bee) by Chris Cleave?
