I noticed today that this blog actually has some followers! So for you loyal readers (both of you) I thought I owed you an explanation of why I haven't been posting lately: I'm on a boat in the middle of the Indian Ocean. That would actually be a better excuse than it is if I didn't have internet connectivity from here; obviously I do (which is a frickin' miracle) but it's spotty. I just wrote up a post about the election, but when I hit the "send" button I lost my connection and the draft as well. I may try to recreate it, but right now I'm feeling pretty frustrated.
I was going to keep a travelogue, but wanted to wait until we got out of India for reasons that will be apparent once I actually get around to telling the story. But it anyone is interested in keeping up with my travels leave a comment and I'll try harder to get updates out in real time.
