Internet Connection

One thing about Australia that is a little different is the Internet is not as good/prevalent/cheap as it is in the USA.  I am learning how to navigate it though.  I have been paying for it at each accommodation and tonight’s was $6AUD for 1 hr.  I am not doing that again.  It has been by far the most expensive and slowest I have encountered.

This is why there have been so few photos because it has been almost impossible to upload…or I haven’t figured out a good system to do it yet.  Once I figure that out I promise you will get to see more of Australia.

Today is another travel day as we make out way up to Fraser Island where we will pass three days.  I have been told I will be able to rent a moped and cruz around.  I am looking forward to that.  I will be working with a few of the students while we travel to upload pictures and find out how they navigate the Internet.

For those of you who don’t travel much, these early Internet snags are part of the fun of learning how another culture operates.  I paid for two days at the last accommodation before realizing that the McDonald’s 50 yards away (open 24hrs) has free wireless.  I’ll be looking for the Golden Arches from now on!

    What some people will do to get out of celebrating a birthday. Happy Birthday anyways! How are you? Lindsay comes home from Volleyball camp today. She is letting us know what is happen not by blogging, but by celling. She calls several times a day. With the woe of the hour. It has been a rollercoaster ride. One time up the next time in the basement. Her 1st disappointment was Emma got put on the team with the older kids and she got on with the younger team. Frosted her cupcakes! I think it was because Mr Cook (the JV coach) was the coach of the younger ones and wanted to she what she could do. Well he saw what she was like yesterday. When she was tired and sore. She started not doing well and went into Gandy mode. She was not serving well, so she got frustrated and started serving them into the back wall. Well after a nap things were much better. She called last night and they were getting Subway, so everything was great. Well have a wonderful birtday! Have a great day. We love you Love, Mom
