at some point someone decided to use 'high speed internet' as a marketing message here. it probably stems from a time when what little internet access was available was at internet cafes. now wireless access or wifi as it is called is available everywhere. here's the thing, the 'high speed internet' access here is still quite a bit slower here than a regular wireless connection in the US as i am painfully reminded each time i try to upload photos. after a week at the Elephant Nature Park with little or no access it's just nice to have reliable service again.
i'm off to Myanmar [also referred to as Burma] tomorrow and i'm so excited because i've never been there and have been wanting to visit for years. i'm told the electricity is not consistently available and the internet access quite slow. it may be a while before i can post again.
