I woke up this morning and learned that the WIFI here at the condo had been hit by lightning during an overnight thunderstorm and the nice girl at the front desk had no idea when it would be fixed. How will we find the shops? How will we find the restaurants without access to our IPads and other devices?
It was as if we were transported backwards in time…
Then my wife Deb made an amazing discovery. In a drawer, buried beneath a bunch of maps, she found a strange book with white and yellow pages. I didn’t recognize it at first, but as I flipped through the thin recycled rice paper with all the information listed alphabetically, it began to dawn on me what it was. It was a phone book! OMG!
The maps, although primitive, were very useful depicting the natives engaged in what can only be described as everyday life. We decided to go exploring and were surprised to find most of the places shown still exist today!
Later when we returned I carefully placed the maps along with the other various artifacts back in the drawer for the next person to find. They may find them useful if the WIFI goes out again!
