On The Move...And A New Column Below

The peripatetic staff of H I is moving once again. Having estimated the weight and size factors of the baggage required for this trip, it is clear that either the portable computer or the 6 bottles of gin will have to be left behind. In the best traditions of journalism, the gin wins. As a result, there will be no columns published from today until approximately 5 June. In the interim, readers may wish to peruse previous columns in the archives section. Subscribers will receive an announcement of resumption of activity as soon as the detoxification programme is completed.

Now, did you want me to serve that gin sporting galley wench attire, or previously specified flamenco dancer attire? Think hard, and you only get one choice! Don't fall down two many stairs while awaiting completion of your detoxification programme!

I'm swigging gin at this very moment(ice cold from the freezer). I do hope you've selected good gin as nothing ruins travel as easily as the bad varieties. Yes, we're all about the juniper berry here (and of course, reading Homo Insapiens).

Also on the move these days...and soon on my way back. But since I found the number of the "under the table" alcohol seller back in Cairo, my dilemma is different. Computer or the 6 kilos of (unbelievably good) smoked wild boar ham? The solution? Spend $600 on an Imate smartphone and bring back the ham.

Have a good and safe trip.
