Keeping track of Dale... 

Dale, your friends in the SVCA computer group are very much interested in your travels! As you keep me posted, I promise to keep our SVCA friends updated on your whereabouts and general well-being with excerpts from your emails. Sounds to me like you're having a real adventure!
Friends, family and voyeurs, if you want to read Dale's journal about his trip, go to Bicycle Around the World - another granni39 production!

Interested in an adventure in teaching? Our bicycling friend's former employer in Bishkek, the capitol of Kyrgyzstan, is looking for an English-speaking "native" to teach in her small private school, so I posted her request on Dale's website.

 Bicycle Around the World:  A  friend  recently began completion of  a voyage begun 5 years ago! Past webmaster of SVCA, Dale plans to check his email occasionally as he travels around the world on his bicycle. He has promised to include me in his updates so I can update you on his progress around the world on his bike

Here I am in Bishkek, resting, recovering from Jet Lag, renewing old acquaintances, and monitoring all the changes that have taken place since I was here five years ago - and all the things that have remained the same as well. My host and former employer here is the owner and director - and main teacher - at a small English language school here.
I arrived here at 3:00am local time on Friday. All flights were on time, and except for long layovers in three airports, the trip was pretty hassle free - until I learned thatmy bicycle was still in Moscow. With the help of my host I made a claim with Aeroflot, but we are just coming off of a long weekend here so
there was no way to find out anything until today - at least not without the help of my host, who can make the appropriate phone calls in Russian. Anyway, she made that all important phone call a few minutes ago. The bicycle is at the Bishkek airport (:-). With any kind of luck they will deliver it to the apartment where I am staying, tomorrow.

Okay folks... so there's Bishkek...
