Internet Update

spotty at best

sunny 21 °C

The computer here at the B&B hasn't been able to read my USB drive to upload our photos, so I've been holding out on the posts until I got that straightened out -- big mistake, since internet access went down here entirely yesterday through today. A quick recap then, of what we've done so far, coming next. More detailed posts, with photos, will follow.

We're here

just checking in

Kind of a long delay at the airport last night, but the flight over and drive in went ok, apart from some minor navigational difficulties. We're getting cleaned up and heading out to eat, and we'll have more and more interesting things to say in a bit. Ciao!
