This is a bit of laziness on my part for which I apologise. And despite the title I am not actually looking for some sort of voyeur spy satellite.
I have two questions. First. I'm looking for some sort of reference I can use as a metaphor for the gentleman's trouser friend in Inca mythology (or daily life). I don't know enough about the society to know which bits the searches turn up will be useful. And I don't really want* to read reams and reams for a throwaway reference as I am easily distracted enough to start off with. Any pointers would be gratefully received.
Secondly, and I haven't searched this as it only just occurred to me. Still, while I'm here...
If Mr X is in the back of beyond in South America and using a laptop to talk to someone in England via webcam: Would he have a limited window of opportunity or is satellite coverage across the globe pretty much universal now?** If there is a window, (roughly) how long is it?
Thank you for your time.
(Sorry if any rules have been bent.)
*Well, I do. But if I do I will never finish what I'm up to.
**If he can. If he can't then I am going to close my eyes and pretend I never read about it.
