Ok we’re not bouncing off any satalites. Only cell towers for now. We have our backup connection in place!

It’s a cell dongle we picked up in Thongsala for about 300 CAD. It costs us .03 CAD per minute to use. The speed claims to be 100 kbps and that feels about right. It’s not great but it’s alot better than being stuck in the dark ages. Actually it IS pretty neat that we’re connected to the intertubes at any given location in the populated world… or however far accepts this sim card.

Expect better/more updates. In fact I am uploading a bunch of pictures taken over the last few days as we speak.

Actually that was going to cost us a small fortune. Oh well got 6 up. A few of Chaloklum and a few of just stuff. I’ll get the rest up later and name/organise them all.
