There's been a lot of coverage of the Belgian connections for the attackers in Paris. But some of the perpetrators were young French nationals from the poor, crime-ridden, immigrant suburbs outside of Paris.

So this past weekend, I joined a middle school teacher on a trip to a Paris suburb to see the recent attacks through the eyes of kids who belong to the same generation, and live in the same suburban area as some of the attackers.

Days after the attacks in Paris, Serbia, Macedonia and Slovenia began tightening their border controls. They all looked to Hungary for help and advice.

In the past two months, Hungary has become Europe’s most vocal opponent to accepting migrants — even those from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Iran.

The city of Peterborough is about a 90-minute drive northeast of Toronto. It’s a town of some 80,000 with one small mosque. A day after the attacks in Paris, the mosque was set on fire.

“They called me, I came, I saw the smoke,” says Kenzu Abdella, a mathematics professor and president of the Kawartha Muslim Religious Association in Peterborough.

As a French resident of Massachusetts, I have reported previously about the thrill of discovering a French fine foods store in Lexington, Mass, called MA France.

The Thanksgiving holiday is expected to see millions of drivers on the road.

In Maryland just under a million are expected out and about, while another 128 thousand from Delaware will be traveling – most of them by car.

This is a small increase from last year but holiday traveling has seen a continuous rise since the end of the Great Recession.
