High-tech frustrations

Posted: December 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

I bought a Flip HD video camera specifically to be able to share videos on this blog, and for whatever reason, now that I’ve put a few movies together, the software won’t let me upload it onto this site. Very frustrating.

I also wrote a blog this morning on my iPad, which for some reason is not working at this hotel. Will try to uplink elsewhere later today. (I’m using Kelly’s laptop right now.)

The lack of wi-fi locations in this country has kind of caught us off guard, as has the fact that distances here are much further than we thought, leaving us little time for communication with family or friends via phone lines or SKYPE with that pesky 18-hour difference in time.

So…just to say it…we are doing well! Our colds are pretty much gone, but we’re really pushing ourselves on this trip to see as much as possible, and it’s leaving us exhausted by the end of the day. There will be a few places where we can catch our breath, but it’s one of those situations where you really don’t want to miss anything in a far-off land you may never see again, and so you push yourself (and your hardy daughter) to the limit every day.

So we apologize for not calling at Christmas…we hope to be able to do that around New Years. But suffice it so say, this is a wild adventure and we’re trying to do as much as we can in what now seems like a very short amount of time, despite it being the longest vacation of our lives!
