Blogging from Marsa-Matrouh
Blogging over dial-up connection in condominium (Marsa-Matrouh). Omar's old Navy friend knows the owner of the condo, which gave us the reservation. Unfortunately, the 220VAC -> 120 VAC converter bought @Radio Shack (Alexandria) was rated only for 20W, & it blew up! (the laptop accessory uses 70W). So, my blog only lasted 30 min.
Unfortunately, the car was being stored at Omar's friends house, so I couldn't pull out the spare-battery & use the inverter (12VDC -> 120VAC). Next morning, we did this (while Toyota Landcruiser is being fixed), which is how I'm blogging now..
