The road to Berlin / the road to Moscow
Earlier this year, I went to a friend’s wedding in Warsaw. I had spent many years reporting from Central Europe, and like others, became fascinated by the echoes of the past in the region. This footbridge across Poland’s main east-west motorway brought home the geopolitics of Poland, a flat country with no natural defences, caught between two great powers. Now it is peaceful in that part of Europe, but our world feels very troubled again.
