Boohoo. It's been almost a week now. Life without internet. Almost.
K phones the phone company 2 - 3 times every day to either complain or find out what progress they might be making. Not much. It's not all Poros, just our sparsely inhabited part of the island. Maybe they're not too worried. I bet they would never leave the whole island without internet.
But they didn't reckon on my traditional Greek who loves sitting on the phone 'chatting' and will not stop until he gets action. He's notified all the neighbours too and make sure they are phoning for daily updates.
None of the operators really know what's going on even though they're here in Greece and not in India. But his constant prodding has given us free 10GB worth of data.
Know how fast that disappears when you're listening to YouTube podcasts all night? Not very long.
We've been out for coffee a couple of times to use the cafe's WiFi . That's ok when I'm reading but not when I'm trying to type something on a tiny screen with big-people-fingers.
And it's the end of the month so online payments have to be made. What a hassle.
We can live without Facebook, blogging, Viber, Whatsap or Instagram. But I don't want too!
