I know, it's not the same without her, right?

I saw her at the Aquatic Experience convention earlier in November and she was shortly to be leaving to India for 3 weeks, to explore aquatic plant habitats! Hope they are finding lots of cool stuff. I agree there is a missing feel here without Karen. We can all try to hold down the fort and keep posting photos and helping folks out!

She might not have internet access where she is.

Oh ok! I was getting nervous. I even tried to contact her on FB. Glad she is traveling and probably not even thinking about us!! LOL

Not unless she is on the moon. Come to think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if they even have internet access on the moon nowadays. Oh well, at least she will know she was missed when she comes back and reads this.

Yes, Karen is in India and will return home this weekend. In fact, it may be tomorrow! She certainly is missed on the forum and I'm sure by Kodi. She even missed Thanksgicing!

Actually I would hazard a guess that within the more remote types of areas she would be going to find aquatic plants, internet might not be such a given. And I think she probably has Plant Brain and not much leisure time if it's anything like trips I have done!

I'm back!!!

Yes, I've been in India for 3 weeks, and NO… there are DEFINITELY still parts of the world where internet is not available, including many of the places we visited.

In India, there is only internet as we know it (over lines in the ground or overhead wires) in the biggest cities, and only in the wealthy parts of those. Only the most expensive hotels have wireless. Exactly ONE hotel of all those we stayed at (the one at the airport when we came in, and just before we left) had wireless, which you had to pay an hourly fee to use.

Because there is so little wired service, everyone in India accesses the internet via cellular service. This is good probably in more rural areas in India than in the U.S., but it isn't without holes in the network, and isn't available to travelers who don't want HUGE roaming charges.

Fortunately, our drive had an iPhone and was able to set up a personal hot spot for us most mornings (when we were in areas where there was a cell signal) so we could at least check our e-mail.

There was no time for checking on forums, however, even if we'd had time in between the other things we were doing. As it is, we typically left the hotel at 8AM (after having breakfast and packing, as we changed hotels daily) and typically finished up sorting photos and writing notes sometime between 10 and 11 at night.

We surveyed and photographed some incredible biotopes, though, so it was worth all the hard work! This young girl is holding up the leaves of an extremely rare aquatic plant with leaves that grow up to 30 meters long!
