- Tech Fact of the Day: While in Morocco, BikeAbout's connection to the Internet is through an ISP called AzureNet. Using a special number, BikeAbout can dial from anywhere in Morocco and pay only local telephone rates. Apparently, this is going to change at the beginning of the year (1998). To get a local dial-up rate, it will be necessary to use a local provider.
Next Stop: Tetouan!
