So, it has been a bit more difficult than I planned getting this trip under way. Not like buying tickets for planes, trains, or buses. And certainly nothing like charting a course for one's yacht. Even a valid passport doesn't do much good here in cyberspace.
Hmmm... you know I think that phrase is actually outdated already? That's how fast things change around here. But -- like any other foreign country -- one must take a good deal of time learning the language. I have also found it helpful to ask for assistance.
Which is why I have invited my good friend, the Professor to pay a visit tomorrow and explain some of these technical things to me in a language I can better understand. Things like "servers" who don't serve tea, "hosts" one has to tip at the door even though you've been invited to come in, and "pointers" who are so invisible they can't possibly be of any use to bewildered travelers such as myself.
In the meantime, I'll just get back to my study and the current work-in-progress, which is heating up quite nicely. The leading lady has come home unexpectedly during the workday only to discover a man in her house...
Now, that, I can deal with.
Current work-in-progress: The Pandora Box. Romantic? Yes. Adventure? Of course.
