I noticed that my Site Meter had been registering a number of hits from locations in the Lambeth area (including some from the BBC itself - the hits were spread round different establishments because presumably too many hits from the BBC would be too obvious). The person/s from the BBC checked only the blogs I posted relating specifically to wandering scribe and then they moved on to blogs of people who had posted comments concerning those particular blogs.
Also did nobody else find it strange that DitchMonkey only mentioned WS once in his blog on 3rd April (I am not counting the lengthy blog that she posted on his site on 6th Feb.) and nowhere has he mentioned the meeting that was supposed to have taken place between him and WS. I am sure there was a second blog where he mentioned her by name (Anya Peters) and that she had emailed him to say she had been mentioned on the front page of the New York Times but I cannot find that anymore no matter how much I search. If he had been communicating with her via email would we not have had a progress report from him at some point?

The man in the woods

And at the same time he continues his daily commute to work in London. A guy called Hugh (DM), who also has a blog. Because I was stunned that someone else was 'choosing' to be homeless for a year, and intrigued, I emailed him. We met and kept in contact by email
