As you can tell, I finally made it to an Internet connection in Berwick-upon-Tweed (mid-way between Edinburgh and Newcastle on the east coast).

A big welcome to all the WB folks who are following this journal!

It was originally my intent to post "live" from the field rather than in batches of entries as has turned out to be the next-best and only possibly alternative so far.

The campground where we are staying offered Internet access last year, but does not this time. The castle has a dial-up connection, but almost hardly ever works, and when it does, it takes minutes to render a page, assuming someone else isn't using it.

Accessing the Internet in rural Egypt was much easier than from this place. This morning I used the local library to catch up on email but could not upload the photos or panoramas from there, so I've had to come down here to a hostel for the journaling.

Okay... off to download some videos of Baby to my digital camera's card (which serves as a thumb drive via USB adapter), for viewing in the comfort of my own tent back at camp tonight. Then, I'll take a hike 'round this town's medieval walls, visit some shops, and perhaps try an Indian restaurant down the street.
