Where am I?

Hint: the language in the large billboard picturing a giant pear that resembles a big butt is Polish.

Answer: Warsaw!

That's right, I am in a land far, far away, in a time zone I don't even know. In fact, I will be abroad for about five weeks. I plan to blog at every opportunity, so stay tuned -- you won't want to miss an exciting moment!

Blogging from Poland may be a challenge. Sure, it's a commonplace to say, "hey, the whole world is wired." That may be so, but it's not like you can walk into any coffeehouse or train station or library and just fire up the wireless. You can't even do that in the USA. So far in Warsaw, I'm finding internet access a bit like being an undocumented worker... right now I've snuck into Jeremy's posh hotel room, where I'm hooked up to an ethernet connection. Jeremy has left the country, but Nina wangled a way to keep the room until checkout time.

That's right folks, it's The Blogger Dinner European Tour!

MORE PROOF THAT I'M IN POLAND: When I enter www.google.com into my url window, I get this.

I love travel blogging!
 
Wow! Pictures from my ancestral homeland! I'll be hanging on your every travelogue word...
 
Are you allowed to blog the word "butt"? If so I have some catching up to do.
 
Um, yeah... I would say you have some catching up to do with my blog, for starters. Try Googling "columnist manifesto and butt."
