The best laid plans of mice and men… Ah, the internet age, the tyrannies of technology. At another time I will rail about the bait and switch nature of the cell phone (sure, you can use it almost anywhere, but you can’t hear what anyone is saying) but for the moment, a quick techno-update. I am on the ground in Western Australia and getting ready to head out into the countryside seeking olive oil. My current hotel is equipped with wifi, but it costs about as much as shiatsu massage on a per-minute basis, so I am in Internet Gypsy mode. If you would like to follow more frequent short updates, please click on my Facebook page and follow me there. I’ll also be posting on Twitter from the field. Literally.
