Freihandel ist eine sehr große Chance für Osteuropa

Freihandel ist eine sehr große Chance für Osteuropa und hilft indirekt zukünftige NPL- (non performing loan, faule Kredite) Risiken in Osteuropa zu verringern.
Osteuropa muss allerdings noch stärker als bisher seine Produkte am internationalen Markt vermarkten können. Die EU als Chance für mehr Wirtschaftswachstum wurde bisher etwas zu wenig wahrgenommen. Die Möglichkeiten der EU könnten stärker dazu genutzt werden, wirtschaftlich schwächeren Ländern mehr internationale Vermarktungschancen zu bieten. Auch in Westeuropa sind osteuropäische Produkte bisher zu wenig vermarktet und bekannt. Bisheriger Fehler der EU war meiner Meinung nach, die mangelnden Reformen und die Probleme der Länder mehr in den Vordergrund zu rücken und weniger die Wachstumschancen und -Potentiale.

Laut folgender Grafik ist in Süd- und Osteuropa das Risiko der faulen Kredite noch am größten.

Turkey

When I was arriving in Turkey, at the first moment I thought, that I was in Greece.
Because at Atatürk Airport, there were some Greek "Atlas" planes, beside the landing position of turkish airlines.
But then I remembered the environment of Atatürk Airport.
At passport control I waited a long time. 1 elder and 3 younger Iranian women were beside me. The 3 younger ones started to wear their headscarf in a manner, that some of their hairs were looking out, because they had seen a Turkish woman, who weared her headscarf in the same way.
Now I realized fully, that I was in Istanbul.

... to be continued ...

Istanbul is like it was last year, all the little shops, live on street even in hot high noon.
Mosques are open. During Ramadan mosque calls more often for prayer as during the rest of year.

Churches are open too.

Nevertheless Istanbul is very secular. I've seen less women wearing a Burka as in 10th district of Vienna.

I've seen many new stores here:

From Atatürk Airport in Istanbul, you can fly to more destinations as from many other european airports.

Galway Girl

GALWAY GIRL SONGTEXT

She played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"

I met her on Grafton street right outside of the bar
She shared a cigarette with me while her brother played the guitar
She asked me what does it mean, the Gaelic ink on your arm?
Said it was one of my friend's songs, do you want to drink on?
She took Jamie as a chaser, Jack for the fun
She got Arthur on the table with Johnny riding a shotgun
Chatted some more, one more drink at the bar
Then put Van on the jukebox, got up to dance

You know, she played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"
With my pretty little Galway Girl
You're my pretty little Galway Girl

You know she beat me at darts and then she beat me at pool
And then she kissed me like there was nobody else in the room
As last orders were called was when she stood on the stool
After dancing to Cèilidh singing to trad tunes
I never heard Carrickfergus ever sang so sweet
A capella in the bar using her feet for a beat
Oh, I could have that voice playing on repeat for a week
And in this packed out room swear she was singing to me

You know, she played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"
My pretty little Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl

And now we've outstayed our welcome and it's closing time
I was holding her hand, her hand was holding mine
Our coats both smell of smoke, whisky and wine
As we fill up our lungs with the cold air of the night
I walked her home then she took me inside
To finish some Doritos and another bottle of wine
I swear I'm gonna put you in a song that I write
About a Galway Girl and a perfect night

She played the fiddle in an Irish band
But she fell in love with an English man
Kissed her on the neck and then I took her by the hand
Said, "Baby, I just want to dance"
My pretty little Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl
