a full decade into the 21st century that quick and available internet access would be a given.
And you would be wrong.
1. Hotels have access but it is often slow. Very slow. And it can be unreliable and intermittent.
2. Chain restaurants also have access, and it is often slower than hotels. Perhaps it is dial-up nostalgia.
3. Getting on line in the homes of friends and relatives is difficult to impossible because NOBODY knows the password to their router. Do you know yours? I rest my case.
4. Mobile posting from phones shows up on the blog only sometimes and even then can be overlapping another post, making it unreadable.
We have already said that this is not a chronologically or even prompt blog. That is still true.
