Jane's Special Skype from Gombe

One extraordinary change at Gombe - I am sitting in the house on the beach where Grub grew up waiting to send a skyped message to the UK in commemoration of the 50th anniversary. When I arrived there was no faxing, no emailing - certainly no Skyping! Only telegrams if you wanted to communicate fast - and from here they took at least several days to a week. Letters took two to three weeks to get the UK, even by airmail.
