Last update we followed Eilífr Goðrúnarson on his way to Heimen by plain. He’s a journalist and is here to report the Illium-Calistan peace summit.

We arrived this morning at Heimen Square. A huge crowd gathered, some people even stayed here the night, just to have a good spot to see Her Majesty Queen Alexandra Lynn Sariah II of Illium. The people who came here have al kind of backgrounds. Some of them are living just around the corner, or nearby at least. But on the other hand there are many people who travelled far to witness this historical event. Last week HeimAir even scheduled double of the usual flights to the Illium Empire. The crowd is a mix of different people, as I mentioned already, a mix of both pro-Illium and pro-Calistan people. As Calistan is currently occupied by Illium troops none of them could come here. Fact is that during the last century, and the great war many Calistani people fled to Eunomia to find a better future. The Calistani troughout Eunomia are generally known as hard working, silent, people that never complain, they’re happy with what they’ve got here: freedom and safety for their families. The worst, unimaginable things have happened to them during the many civil wars and the following dictatorship and of course the great war.

What all these people have in common is hope, they have hope that this meeting can bring peace to Calistan after all those years. They don’t want this anymore, no-one does, but for some reason war is like a returning curse for the Imerean country.

Currently there’s not much to see, the summit is held inside the building behind solid wooden doors. Neither could the people see much of the queen, she stayed inside her car, the president of Calistan didn’t show his face either.

When I’m sitting here, looking at the Bell tower I have a dèja vu moment. Weird those dèja vu things.

Right the now there’s nothing I can do, there’s nothing to see, so nothing to tell the people back home in Eisland. The only thing I can do is wait, we shall wait until something happens. Hopefully the bells in the Bell tower will ring one of these days.

Now I remember why I got this dèja vu, de Rijksdag looks this way exactly the way it looked in my middle school history book. It’s a black-white picture of de tower with on the Eislandic flag. It was hung there shortly after it declared independence from Heimen. Nobody was there to celebrate it, it was immediately recognized by the Heimic government, nobody cared about that rock somewhere out there in the ocean. Hopefully we’ll see both the Illium as the Calistan flag flying there soon, wíth the entire world know about it.

To be continued…
