CANADA | Friday, 18 Apr 2008 | Views [560]

Just so everybody knows (specifically my mother)- I WANT to put up pictures! I just can't find any computer on earth with a fast/stable enough connection to do so! It's funny that it's way easier to find computers in Honduras than it was in Costa Rica.... Read more >
