C and W

I have moved back up a hill, to the house I used to live in. So now I am back living in a nice cool climate, with fresh air and fireflys.

Along with that comes the joys of increased traffic, all-night sessions at the rum bar and an increased lack of interest from public service companies.

We have adjusted to some of the issues – we have a water tank and pump to deal with the daily water lock-offs. We have candles everywhere.

However, the phones went off in Wilma. And they haven’t come back yet. So no landline and no internet! And as we are up a hill, with not many people around, they are apparently in no rush to fix our phone.

Fortunately mobile phones exist. And fortunately, Digicel recently built a new tower in the area – so we now have proper reception! I wonder if there is some underhand stuff going on… a spy in Cable and Wireless told Digicel that landlines in the area would be not working, so they knew to build a new tower…

Traffic – AGAIN!!!! Sorry

    You are not supposed to look a gift horse in the mouth! Didn’t you know that? Be thankful.

    I think the fresh air and fireflies up in the hills more than make up for everything else.

    A cousin of mine, living abroad, borrows books on CD’s to listen to in traffic. She said it’s helped her 100%.
