Mother's Day Skype Call

I received a mother's day gift from Mac......a skype call!  Yeah!

Some things I learned

*  He lives in a seaside town.  Remote, beautiful, green and spa-like.  But the internet connection stinks!!  Either he could hear us or we could hear him, but not at the same time.  We would type question and then speak the answer and vice versa.  He finally went to another internet cafe down the street.  We could finally talk, but the connection was so slow, so it was hard to see and understand what he was saying. 

*  He is having trouble speaking English.  We asked if he and his companion live with anyone else, and it took 3-4 minutes for him to remember the word room mates!  By the way, it is just he and the  companion in the apartment.  No.....what's that word.....oh yeah, room mates!

*  He is loving the people and the country.  He looks happy!  Best mother's day gift for me!
