In my haste to get ready I forgot to empty the pockets of my jeans before I washed them and I just annihilated an expense check for $78. There was enough left to photograph and send to accounting so they can cut me a new one. Oh how I love digital technology!
I’m really glad I called Cingular to ask about International rates on my phone because the guy said if I turn my phone on in Peru and someone calls me and leaves voice mail it will cost $3.49/min. That’s right – $3.49/min if you so much as pick up a signal from a tower. If you actually use the phone they continue to bill you at that rate. I’m sure the unwary generate bills that exceed the GNP of Peru every day. I’ll leave it turned off.
I’d like to leave you with these very important thoughts from the Beach Boys who wrote a song called Mama Sez:
Happy training and racing to all and of course I will post pictures when I get back. Ta ta, peeps!!
