During this trip I'm officially off cell phone, IM, email, Blogger, Buzz, Digg, Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, Google groups, Linkedin, Myspace, Ning, Picasaweb, Posterous, Skype, Typepad, Twitter, Yelp, and every other timewasting productivity-enhancing social-networking unified messaging cloud infrastructure SaaS virtual distributed open source crowdsource system I've signed up for.
Except on www.yakwhisperer.com site, which oddly enough, has finally found a huge following in Mongolia. Go figure. So feel free to leave comments below.
As it turns out, there's not much cell service here in the Gobi desert. We're at the Three Camel Lodge, but unfortunately with zero bars of cellular reception. Probably just an AT&T issue. Those guys can't get anything right. It's like total sang-froid savoir faire.
Still, this is a pretty nice place for the middle of the desert. We're staying in Yurts, which in the local language are known as Ger. And believe me, these are first class Ger. Might be the finest in all of Mongolia.
And yet, no cellular reception.
See how you like it. Just total friggin' silence. Two can play at that game, smart guy.
We'll just see how you like it.
