This blog is my personal views only and is not affiliated in any with the US Peace Corps and does not reflect an views of Peace Corps or the US Government. Hope this entry finds everyone well. I am embarrassed to report that I’m addicted to fast, easy Internet access and continue to suffer severe withdrawals. Yes, the saga of the search for Internet, (as opposed to an Internet search) continues!!! After coming upon many dead ends, bitter ends, split ends, frayed knots and waiting for over a month, a new item came on the market, the Flybox, not to be confused with Livebox, which is, isn’t, is, isn’t available in Kopong.
