Hello from Petit-Swag - I have been offline for the last 24 days because the internet service to our home was not working! After countless of phone calls (communicating in our best German possible) with the cable company and after several appointments to our home, the cable company finally tore up the street in front of our home and replaced the cables to our house getting us back online! Apparently the cables were old and on account of the very cold temperatures, the cables just stopped working, after perhaps also tearing! URGH - what terrible luck we have had this past month! Tearing up the street was obviously the cable company's last resort, so we waited and waited and waited for them to check this and that and then, finally, they needed a permit and a date to work on the street and, Voila we are alas back online.
As I mentioned, the weather has been cold in Düsseldorf and I am missing the sunshine and warm weather. So I decided to share photos of Mario in Spain from this past summer - I am dreaming of the sunshine and remembering when we were also not online but we were totally happy about it!
