The Washington Post has released a recording of Mahatma Gandhi giving a speech in English. It was made a few months before the Indian activist was assassinated, in April 1947, and kept safe in the home of a Washington journalist for 60 years.

It's the Ramble.

The smoking ban in Holland was a long time coming. Restaurants and cafes here are very small and there is almost never a non-smoking section.
