Connecting to the Internet, part 2

Or, maybe, I should say NOT connecting to the Internet. Since my last posting, we traveled much of the Isle of Lewis and Harris, then returned by way of Ft. William and Glencoe. Connecting to the Internet from the Outer Hebrides is possible but difficult. The guest house I was at for two nights had access, but the computer was broken. In Ft. William we arrived late on a Sunday and very little was open (businesses closing on Sundays reminds me of growing up in the 50’s and 60’s; times have changed in the States, but not here). the Glasgow hotel we stayed in our last night had a computer but the Internet connection was down. I walked over to the hostel (I’ll be staying there again my last night) and checked their cafe, but it was unexpectedly closed. So, after a day in Falkirk and getting to Edinburgh, I’m finally back on. For those willing to carry a laptop, there are often Wi-Fi hotspots available, but I’m not willing to carry the weight. It sure is hard roughing it like this. šŸ˜‰
