Connecting to the Internet

One of the challenges here is connecting to the Internet. I’ve used a few paid Internet connections, but the best place to check email and write my blog is at libraries. My hat is off to the libraries here. They provide free access to visitors–all you have to do is fill out a short form, show some ID and you get a login account and password. So far I’ve used the libraries in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Kirkwall and, now, Ullapool. A special note should be made of the Kirkwall library. It was the first public library in Great Britain, founded in 1683. How’s that for a historical contrast: 1683 to the Internet?

Gotta go to pick up my ferry ticket and cruise town here a bit before the ferry sails. Hope you are all well.
