The Dust of Two Deserts

(part 6 of 6. In transit)

back to the airport (see part 2 “The Nearly Terminal”)

126 .. Travelling light means that I carry just two pairs of shoes (a lightweight black leather business pair and a pair of comfortable running shoes)*

* After shooting video in both the Nevada and Gobi deserts, my runners were coated with multiple layers of fine dust. Trekking over a mountain to a remote Chinese village, rinsed them clean!

127 .. Commemorate your trip with photographs, but be selective. You have a large capacity analogue storage device in your head. It is preferable to remember, rather than abdicate in favour of a digital recording, or isolate yourself by constantly viewing your surroundings via a screen

128 .. Breathe.

If you can’t change it, or work around it, just chill and accept it!

There is no point having a heart attack over a long delay or even a 24 hour flight postponement. Attempt other routings or transport options. However, if none can be found, utilise the extra time to relax or explore some local hospitality. Enjoy the experience

The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.

Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.

We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.

I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.
