What does one do in the dark of the early morning, unable to sleep due to jet-lag, locked into an apartment because the key broke off in the lock? Why, one would take a crack at a blog entry, that´s what one would do!
So, there I was, alone at the keyboard one night in Austria. Staying awake? No problem! The biggest challenge was remembering the German keyboard layout; the ‘y’ and the ‘z’ positions were reversed, the shift keys were displaced outward a bit, a lot of shifting was required to type punctuation that´s normally available without shifting, that sort of thing.
Actually, no, the biggest challenge was figuring out what to write. I wanted to write about the hikes I´d planned to take and the mountains I´d planned to climb. Instead I got in round-about fashion whatever virus happened to be going around the local day-care. Hopefully I´ll have better luck next trip!
