Comments Have Now Been Turned Back On

Hello readers. I have returned from my honeymoon and Vinography is now active again. Comments have been re-enabled and blogging will resume tomorrow provided that I actually wake up from this massive case of jet lag.

Where did you travel to for your honeymoon? Inquiring minds and all that....

And congrats, too!

Thanks folks. For those inquiring, Ruth and I spent three weeks in Egypt. We started in Sharm El Sheik on the Red Sea and then travelled to Cairo, Luxor, cruised up the nile on a boat to Aswan, and then returned to Cairo.

Look for the lowdown on Egyptian wines coming soon.
