Set TWO: (original up loads from africa 2001)

The following photos were uploaded directly from Africa via satellite telephone and land line using a Sony FD-90 digital camera, a Sony TRV-520 digital camcorder, a Gateway P3 laptop computer and the wonders of the internet. Sounds kind of funny today, but it was state of the art at the time. These photos were posted "live from Africa" in the spring of 2001.
