Sorry/pardon/scuzi for the drought of posts and then then the flood.
Driving instead of public transportation has a lot of advantages,
especially for five people, but a disadvantage
is less downtime for writing and editing posts. (He edits this stuff?
What doesn't make it in?) We are still working out the Internet
situation, with limited access and a mostly dead laptop. The only
close cafe with internet access often plays loud dance music and it's
hard to do anything when all you can hear in your head is the techno
beat. Yet we survive, without a constant stream of friend updates or
even an English newspaper to help me wake up. I guess we'll have a lot
to sort through a lot of stuff later.
