Protocolo con corsé vuelve al cole después de unas largas y merecidas vacaciones. Retomamos el curso protocolero/protocolario con dos publicaciones a la semana, como ha sido habitual desde el inicio del blog.
Tenía preparado un post para hoy pero los acontecimientos de estos días me han hecho cambiar de idea, lo dejo para la semana que viene. Mientras tanto comparto con ustedes un glosario de términos en inglés relacionados con el luto y el duelo que he ido encontrando en tweets, noticias y comunicados.
