    I'm just trying to keep a fire under this so that it doesn't just go the way of the dodo.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    I'm hoping the trip will send up a flare if it's in trouble; otherwise, I wish it well...
    Considerably AWOL at the present time...

    I'm glad to see that this still has a little life in it.

    Hey,

    somehow I forgot to post here and then it got out of sight.

    The little Olympus Trip (a nice camera btw) arrived in Germany last year, it took me some time to take a shot and I sent it off to France. And it took way longer to arrive there than was planned, maybe Laurent can explain a little bit. But I think it was in the best sense of this project because it was a chaotic trip to France ...

    Anyway I was worried about it being lost and now I am glad that it resurfaced

    Cheers
    Ruediger

    Have you managed to lose any cameras yet?

    Hi,

    so, as Rüediger suggested, here's some more information...

    The camera left Germany in mid December last year, and, finally, made it to my home in France... yesterday !!

    David : this is your Oly trip, and it's a very nice camera !

    It seems they routed it to the wrong place first (may be the German postcode created some confusion with a location near Paris), and then it has been routed to several post-offices until some clever person (at least cleverer than the other ones !) found that 'somebody' actually wrote the real address it needed to go to.

    When I told the story to my wife*, her first reaction was that the address could no be written any more clearly than what Rüediger did !

    I'm very happy the camera surfaced again, just felt disappointed as I spent a few days in Finland this week, and could have flown with the camera, so that the trip could have been even more chaotic !!

    Anyway, I plan to shoot something in the next days, and will then find another destination for the nice camera !
    Laurent

    I can show the little Olympus a good time in Athens, Greece, if you like.

    Ah, chaos reins supreme. I had thought that most had given up on this project so I was just going to let it die. I am glad that at least one camera has surfaced and we will be able to see some photos from around the world.
