I kept in touch with family and friends during the trip via e-mail.  I would go to the local library or to coffee shops that had Internet access. Most libraries are now connected.  Some offer free access and some charge a small fee.   At some libraries you must sign up in advance to reserve a station. Ironically I found some librarians to be unfriendly and rigid with rules that they feel must be strictly adhered to.  On the other hand most were very friendly and when I told them where I was from and where I was going would be most helpful.

Before I left for the trip I created an html template and some digital postcards that I would insert into the e-mail.  I uploaded the pictures to a web server and used a free e-mail site to access the template and send my messages as html files. The postcards are below. Click on the thumbnails for larger pictures. I inserted my face into some of them.
