Good afternoon, Netizens...
Just as I returned to the office, I received the following message from MHibbs, who is traveling throughout portions of Eastern Europe:
Finally over the jet lag and have found a reliable net cafe... Taking lots of photos and storing up tales for when I return. Lithuania is this weekend. I may have net access there. Dunno for sure. See ya in a couple of weeks.
It has been decades since I wandered around Europe, but then I was both young enough and fearless enough (spell that stupid if you must) to travel most of Europe astride a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle. Although I didn't acquire any bruises during my sojourn, I did manage to get totally lost one time and had to sleep in a ditch a time or two.
But I'll wager that Marty isn't doing anything like that. I have read (and heard) some disturbing reports about the failing economy in Eastern Europe, including from a person who hails from that region. I can hardly wait for Marty's sake return and with it, a lot of excellent tales and good pictures of his travels.
