Why We Seem To Post About So Many Places In One Go

The thing that you need to understand about hotels is that they all seem to be happy to offer free Internet access. On the surface this would seem like a great service, except that you need to have your laptop with you. Adie and I do not have a laptop with us because we had to return ours. For people like us, we can still access the Internet in our hotel but it varies from place to place. In Hawaii, it cost about $5 for 10 minutes and in San Francisco it was $15 for ten minutes. Hollywood had free Internet, but we had to stand at the reception desk in the lobby next to the people checking in.

This has meant that unless we could find an Internet cafe, like we did in San Francisco, with reasonable rates we've been limited by the amount of time we can spend online.

Here in Vegas, w have been able to get the Internet through our television set in the room for a really good price, but only for 24 hours... and with no CD drive. So, I'm trying to catch up on what we've done so far because I haven't been able to write for awhile. :)

  • Yes, I remember how it was. We had the same problems, only the Vegas Internet-TV thing stuffed up and they tried to overcharge me (and it wasn't working most of the time anyway), so they ended up striking it from the bill entirely. But I'd managed to use it about four times during our stay, so effectively I got free Internet usage after all.

    But any update from you guys (when you're able and you're not flat-out doing the actual sightseeing) is a blessing for us, don't worry! :)

  • No no no, in Times Square there's the big Internet cafe (it's huge and well-known for it), and they charged only $9.99 (US) for a week's continual usage. It was a brilliant deal. Look out for that one in New York.

    There might be similar deals in Internet cafes elsewhere, too.

  • Now you tell me Bevis!!! We're paying $15 for 2 hours in a local Deli. Oh well, you probably did tell me and I just forgot.

  • Well, now you know - for when your two hours runs out.

    I'm not sure if I told you before you left, specifically ... but I left the above comment before you got to New York ... that counts, doesn't it? (Even though you had to log on somewhere in order to read it?)

    :)

    Sorry ...
