My latest writing can be viewed via my Google+ feed at https://plus.google.com/+CharlieBowman76 where you will find the following:

Analysis of many of the latest developments throughout the former Soviet Union, with a particular bias towards the central Asian ‘stans’. Also expect frequent nods of approval towards two of my favourite authors, the Kyrgyz writer Chingiz Aitmatov and the towering nonpareil Alexander Solzhenitsyn. 
Pictorial highlights of my trips to the Austrian Tirol and Slovenia’s Julian Alps, accompanied by pertinent news stories arising from these two equally similar but diverse areas of central Europe will hopefully add variety to my Google+ feed, without the feeling that I am spreading my fields of interest too thinly and doing none of them justice.
