Oh, the tribulations of not having internet at home. Today I bought some quiche, a muffin and a flat white at an Esquires Cafe on Lorne Street, so I could use their internet. You get 1 hour & 60MB with any purchase. After about 20 minutes, and this upload of about 3MB, plus a software update (not sure how many MB, but it didn't seem like that many), I suddenly found myself without any internet. When I went to ask the cashier/barrista, he reiterrated the above details to me, to which I replied that I wasn't anywhere near my 60MB limit. He repeated the bit about the 1 hour, to which I responded, "have I been here an hour?" He just shrugged. Customer service anyone?
Now I'm at the library, where I'm having a heck of a time with multiple page reloads, just trying to get from the homepage login to the libsyn publishing tool that I'm typing in now. It's taken me 20 minutes! It's time to get some internet at home, now that I can afford it again.
Anyway, here's something shot back in Kagurazaka, Tokyo, where the internet flowed like the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI and the champiñones were sizzling...
Photo coming soon.
