I will find myself in New York City and La Jolla over the next few days, meeting with business associates and friends, and trying to first-hand gauge the economic temperature in the US.

Posting will be slow while I am on the road and “Words” from the Wise” will take a break this coming Sunday (April 5), The normal blogging service will be resumed on my return to Cape Town by the end of next week.

However, I will be “tweeting” regularly throughout my trip. For those not familiar with the concept, a Twitter feed has been added to the sidebar of Investment Postcards where I post short comments (maximum 140 characters) on topical market issues, and also on my personal whereabouts. You can also “follow me” directly on Twitter by clicking here.

Now for braving 24 hours of time at airports and on airplanes flying from Cape Town to Johannesburg, and then on to JFK via Dakar (for refueling). Wish me well!
