One fun thing about my trip to Italy was the contrast. In Sant Anna in Camprena where I was staying, there was no internet access and cell phones only worked in a far off corner of the property. So Gianluca and Sophie and I went to nearby Pienza where an entrepreneur has set up a satellite internet point. The cool part is that after you buy your online time, you can go outside and sit on the medieval walls of a building with your laptop and use the “weefee”. After the three of us finished catching up with the virtual world, we engaged in that old fashion form of communication: a conversation.
