Greetings from sunny Dublin, Ireland! (really!)
I’m now back in taint.org’s native timezone, although precariously set up and experiencing occasional interruptions. If you’re waiting for a mail from me, it may take a little more time.
To make sure customs agents could read his cat’s chip to match him to his Pet Passport on return to Europe, Mason bought his own scanner at a cost of some Â£200. “I didn’t want to risk the cat being impounded for six months’ quarantine at Heathrow,” he sighs.
Happy to be back — I think. Looking forward to my first pints, in over a year, of creamy Guinness in its native habitat. I also have a couple of half-written weblog entries I wrote on the plane, too…
