Have just spent all morning resizing and color-correcting photos from our trip -- 199 in all, not counting the nearly 600 I didn't touch! Don't even have them all uploaded to my web page yet, but I'm putting this one here so certain people will stop asking when I'm going to send them pictures.

Hope everyone is having a divine Passover and Tenebrae. Thanks so much everyone who has written or left comments; I promise to write back as soon as I can get a connection that costs less than a bloody fortune!
Another update from the U.K. Happy Passover to everyone else celebrating it and a good Easter week to anyone celebrating that!

Please don't be insulted if I don't answer your mail -- it's incredibly expensive to call out from the hotel. Tomorrow with any luck I will get to meet the legendary [livejournal.com profile] viva_gloria in the flesh; we will try not to get into too much trouble. Hope everyone is well and happy!
