….are keeping me from updating the blog. Internet still unavailable chez nous so my limited time at the cafe is spent looking at our bank account and other household matters, and trying to keep up with emails from friends (which I love getting, even though it takes ages to reply).
Part 3 of the Internet Access Saga is still too raw for me to want to rehash quite yet. Suffice to say I have sent back the router etc… to our ISP and have now re-subscribed for the service. Yes, it is as painful as it sounds. The one bright spot was dealing with La Poste is sooooo much better than Canada Post. They’re friendly, they joke, they’re helpful – and prompt! La Poste is everything our ISP isn’t (which is misleadingly called Free, although it is most decidedly not, neither in terms of cost nor accessibility).
In the meantime, here are some pics I took on Friday as I was heading across the Seine to buy yet more stuff at BHV…
