Over a year ago Marjolein Katsma was planning a trip from Holland thru'
Syria, Turkey, Iran, a buncha -stans, and some China, and she was trying
to figger out how to communicate and post to her travel blog while on
the trip. She discussed some of that stuff in a spamcop newsgroup where
she was interactive at the time. She knew she was going to have to be
cybercafe-ing it, so she was trying to work out a plan, and she's a
pretty clever lady. She also is good about 'writing things down'.
Some of her prior planning can be dug up in her blog -- here's a page
that I found because I remembered looking last year.
She's also good about corresponding, so she would probably be helpful to
set up a little email dialog with. She has a number of other sites
