My French telephone didn’t work very well in Holland. I know that several people tried to call me, but I could not connect with them. And reaching people on that phone was also very difficult. Besides I did not have all the names and addresses of my friends with me, for most of my stuff was packed three weeks ago and s now stored with the removal company. Fortunately I got a Dutch prepaid telephone from my dear daughter Femke and that really ‘saved my life’ in Holland.
In my rented house there was no Internet and no TV. And I know that I could have gone to an internet cafe, but that is not my style. I like to work by myself in a quiet room. And now I can tell you that it is quite an experience to live for several weeks without internet and without TV. Give it a try!
