‘Dental tourism’ in the EU

Some enterprising Bulgarian dentists are offering special packages to foreign patients, who travel to the country from western Europe in search of quality treatment at low cost. The industry is set to grow.

What’s in your suitcase, Lydia Potts?

(As professional migrants, we pack a lot of suitcases. But what’s the one item that you always take with you, wherever you go? That’s the question we ask our lecturers in this series.)

Pt.2 Lydia Potts

A foldable hat from Indonesia. Especially on travels closer to the equator. Lydia dislikes wearing hats, but in more tropical settings one can’t avoid it. Hence, she likes this one as it can easily be folded, stored in a bag and taken out whenever it is needed. It does, however, never match with any clothes one might be wearing.
Lydia Potts is the Erasmus Mundus Master Course European Master in Migration and Intercultural Relations (EMMIR)

What’s in your suitcase, Renu Modi?

(As professional migrants, we pack a lot of suitcases. But what’s the one item that you always take with you, wherever you go? That’s the question we ask our lecturers in this series.)

Pt.1 Renu Modi.

A small pressure cooker. As a vegetarian, Renu sometimes has a hard time finding places to eat. But cooking vegetables can take quite a bit of time. Not with this handheld pressure cooker. We think it would also make an excellent weapon, it’s pretty heavy.
Dr. Renu Modi is a Senior Lecturer and former Director (2008-2010) of the Centre for African Studies, University of Mumbai.
She was at the University of Oldenburg from 31 October to 16 November 2011.
