courmayeur

I intended to write a blog post before I left,but time got away from me. now i am attempting to send a message from my kindle. beat and i are in italy, where he is gearing up to run 200 miles in the tor des geants and i plan to binge on hiking, espresso and photo taking. this is my first time outside north america and already a bit of a culture shock. hopefully i will eventually find internet so i can update m photo blog.

    Can't understand why italian keyboard are "damn"... They're normal QWERTY keyboards and you can find different keys set up only on hardware for special application! :)
    Btw, here in Italy free hotspots are not so widespread as in the USA but you can usually find free WiFi in libraries, McD, close to banks and so on...

    Cheers and enjoy the Alps!

  4. If you are anywhere near Naples, please get some pizza. I wish I could remember the name of the place we went (twice). You will never think of pizza the same way again.

    Positano was my favorite place in Italy..hope you guys get to be somewhere near the Amalfi Coast! Have fun.

  10. Hi Edo! They drove me nuts - the alphabet keys were QWERTY but all the punctuation was different! I sent some "interesting" emails, ha. So I gave up on the emails and drank wine instead.

  11. Hope you enjoy it here, and let me know if you make it north of the Alps...
    Germany has different keyboards too, it takes some getting used to but I found it easier to learn the keyboard than try to reprogramme it.
