African internet...

So, here I am trying to create an interesting post…and it’s not working. African internet is such that the connection is not always great. Tonight is one of those nights. On…off…on…off. So much for our internet providers slogan "Always connected". Every time I try to upload a picture the connection is lost…again. I guess it’s good for my patience. However, there comes a time when you just need to give up for the night! That time has come. So, I’ll post a picture next time; if the connection is okay of course.

Don’t get me wrong though. I am thankful that we even have internet here! A big thanks to the anonymous donor that made this possible!!! It’s amazing that we have a connection at both the center and the house…even if they don’t always work. I remember very well that for the first 8 months that I lived here we could only email at the local internet cafes…talk about bad connections!!! I can’t believe the number of hours we spent waiting for emails to download, or driving to the internet café only to find out the server was down, waiting for a computer to be available. At least now, if it takes a while to download or upload I am in the comfort of my own home and can do other things in the meantime. I am thankful!

Hmmm…wonder if I’ll be able to publish this post…

Guess so : )
