Re: What to Do about Internet for 4 months??

up here in the US starbucks is only truly busy on the weekend. otherwise people just come in, get their drink, and leave. The lines can be monsterous but not usually. Well, that has been my experiences (Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, and Sedona, Arizona).

That really would have messed up my plans of moving to Peru. Luckily I smelled the smoke and looked for the cause. Normally I would have ignored it! Thank goodness! I thank God that I didn't give up looking for the cause. I really I did stop looking and then I started looking again.
