By Carl's request, his weblog at carlexeurope.nomadlife.org is closed now. I am sharing this information so that some of his readers here do not assume there's suddenly something wrong with his weblog being not accessible.
This is a normal thing btw. People open and close their weblog all the time for various reasons and I think nomadlife has this courtesy thing that you can close your weblog at any time. It is your weblog and you have full control over its fate. If you need it done, just contact me. There is no need to provide any explanation nor state any reason (although your readers might appreciate some more info from you).
