Danilo Piccioni 8/8/2005 10:36:27 AM

TNX friends! Yes I made it in Vancouver, but I am so very busy, that I don't have the time to post a pict per day yet, especially because I have no internet connection since I am still living in an hotel apartment.
I am far from my desktop computer too and I use a very (extremely) small laptop, so.... I guess all of you just need to wait a little longer before I will be back again.
Sorry I cannot really comment on your phots as I used to, but it will not take long and I will make it up to you!

I miss you too.
THE DX2 is fantastic!!!!!
