Radio Silence

From this evening I'm off to Sri Lanka and Indonesia for two and a half weeks, visiting various tsunami sites, getting on more overnight flights than I care to think about and aiming to beat the world record for jetlag.
I just don't have the room in my suitcase for a laptop so am at the mercy of internet cafes to blog from there. I'm also hopefully going to be doing some blogging for Alertnet while I'm out there
Wish me luck. I've done loads of foreigns but I always get nervous before them...ah well....
Maybe I'll even lose weight and get a suntan*

*NB the only proven way of doing this is being sent on a fishing boat in Norway then onto India straight after. Have never been so sylphlike er I mean pushing forward the boundaries of journalism

Have a good trip.

Just thought - I support a children's charity which among many other situations, is working with children orphaned by the Tsunami in the areas you are visiting. Let me know if you would like me to give you any contacts.

What a shame - read this too late. Which charity is it?

Sara Thomas said...


It's SOS Children - a large charity, but not particularly well-known in the UK.

I look forward to reading your articles.
