Sim Cards & Banda Ancha

Cat and I are in our last week of intensive Spanish classes. It seems like forever ago when we started. We've been progressing poco a poco (little by little) to the point where we can sometimes, sorta understand what's going on. One big accomplishment that made us feel good about our Spanish is when we got a new sim card for our cell phone. I will admit that the person who helped us needed to repeat himself a few times but we finally got a cell. (Now all that's left to do is figure out how to make international calls on it.)

Our next big test will be when we try to get banda ancha (wide band) mobile internet for our laptop. Since internet cafes can get expensive--even at a mere 5000 Gs an hour ($1/hr.)--we figured out that this would be more cost effective. As before, we must put our Spanish to the test and see if we can walk away with mobile internet. Results to follow...
