    That’s a great start… even if you weren’t able to successfully arrange the chicken dances. Are you finding it easy/difficult to update the website as you go along? Are you doing most of it from Internet cafes? Or where? How?

      Thank you!
      We’re finding it easy actually, the world is more connected than ever. Usually we find it in regular cafés, hotel lobbies, hostels and in people’s homes. Sometimes we just walk around in the streets and try out the local WiFis. WordPress’s scheduling function rocks our world!
