another quick update


There have, of course, been more than 1700 kilometres pass under the Diff. since I left Port Julia last year.

My loyal readers will, I hope, forgive me for not posting more regularly - but there have been a myriad of fascinating locations visited, dozens of characters encountered along the way who have, by and large, been friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to meet. Some have been a little more difficult to understand; but that, I guess, is what makes the world go round.

It would be a distinctly dull and dreary collection of human beings if everyone thought the same, dressed the same, behaved in the same way - and had very little to offer each other.

It has been a busy time, having to deal with trip planning and logistics on a teensy budget, so not a lot of time to sit, reflect, collate experiences; and write. This will happen; hopefully within the next few weeks.

Hi travelling man. What makes us different is we are all more dreary and awkward than others and what a dreary lot the other awkward sods are.
When in my old village in England recently I successfully proved to my son that I could catch a stickleback in the brook with a stick with cotton and a bent pin with a tiny worm. Memories of a eight year old.
Life isn't fair, as soon as you get to know everything they get rid of you.
