Dear Emi, and all,

I have just arrived to Germany this afternoon from Budapest - what a scene
at the airport in Budapest - I haven't seen it like that since
Christmastime, especially at the gate for the flight to NY...
Almost all flights were at least one hour late for take-off due to the
complicated air control due to NATO (seriously, the pilot on my flight
admitted it, but only when he spoke in Hungarian).
I shared my flight with three young women just arrived from Beograd...

Sorry for that long-winded intro, meanwhile, since I arrived, I have CNN
on (what an interview that was with Draskovic just now!), and I saw the
spokeswoman for the UNHCR finally mention an emergency meeting they
So I would suggest calling your local UNHCR office, as well as the
International Red Cross. They should be able to direct any
contributions/donations, I guess mainly to Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro?
Actually in Italy as well, as I've heard, refugees are awaited...
