So.. how do you intercept e-mails? You might need software and hardware, to start with. There were instructions in English — I don’t think Libyans wrote them.

For a bit of perspective, albeit not relative to the location you live in but quite relative to the world you live in.
What a difference 20 years make
I spent time inspecting Tripoli on Google Maps, trying to recall places and turning names in my head. Hoping that the sound will bring back memories. And then I got to the square with the old cathedral. It currently looks like this, and from about the same angle, 20 years ago, it looked like this. I might not recognise a lot of places if I ever go there again.
