Dear friend, blog subscriber, casual visitor.  Welcome back!

This blog almost got wiped out by GoDaddy…  You have no idea, what I have been through.  500 traveling days, 1000 pages, 2000 hours of writing and photo editing…  For what seemed an eternity, all was gone.  I guess I was in thorough denial about it.  At this state, I am ecstatic.  So much got saved after all.

The blog is still is not what it used to be and perhaps, it never will be again.  But all of my entries are back, and your comments made it back, too.  However, all the pictures I posted are gone (almost all).

Over the next few months (or might it take years?), we will be working on restoring whatever possible.  Thanks for looking in!  Thank you for your continuing support.
