Modern technology is amazing!

Modern technology is amazing!

Post  MrRAWhite on 2017-01-20, 11:53 am

As some of you who know me from facebook will already know, my eldest lad has just left the country to carry out 3 months of charity work in Zambia. This week he is spending a weeks prep work in the capital Lusaka, and I was amazed when I was checking my facebook page when I received a personal face to face call from my son. The sound and image was so good it was as if he was next to me.
However, he will be based in a small village 12 hours drive from the capital as from Monday, and they do not have any internet there so it will be back to the old fashioned methods of communication. I have my pigeons lined up at the ready.. Laughing

I have the same problem talking to Dave in Weston Super Mare.

Hope he enjoys the experience and comes home safe.
