Aside from a weak Internet connection on the island that I sometimes could only access on weekends and evenings, I have essentially been off-line since September 21. I had been able to check basic view Gmail and post some blog reports but had no chance to edit them or upload photos. Now I am busying myself adding to my Tristan blog and catching up on all the news I missed back home. I kinda liked being over a month Trump-free. The official Tristan da Cunha website always posts news of shipping visits, and who landed on as well as departed the island. I can now see the posts (combined as one) announcing my arrival as well as departure.
