It’s been a nonstop, hectic 9 (only 9!) days since I left BP for Frankfurt. As Jarkie noted in a previous post, I was without Internet for a while. — Nothing like total disconnection to make me realize my dependence on e-mail and search engines. My Internet is still very limited here, since setting up temporary access has proven quite the challenge, but it’s nice in a way not to be interrupted by the regular pings and beeps of iThings.
