Communication with America within the country was basically non-existent. Communicating back home was an arduous task.
Now due to technology and political change - communication happens instantly. Witness the power of this blog, email, and cell phones that allowed us to stay in constant contact with the ones we care about and allowed them to share in our journey.
Gotta thank Blackberry and T-Mobile. I was astounded how good their network coverage was even in remote areas of the country. That allowed me to post update wherever we traveled and share our story.
