TELEPHONE AND INTERNET CRAP
Long story, but in the wind I got advice to carry or someone would give me a International Telephone card. That and about 25 cents US will get me a Tea here.
INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE CARDS
These are international. From the country you live in to an international location. They are advertising this. But crap. The have something called KallBack that sort of works in some countries.
MOST OF EUROPE NOW HAS MOBILE TELEPHONES
If you travel only in Europe. The mobile telephone is good. Covers better than USA coverage. I believe.
REST OF WORLD IS PRETTY MUCH LOTTERY OF WAYS TO CALL.
When there is a telephone center... Like Iraq, or Ecuador, etc. it is nice.
You go into a booth and they connect you.
Turkey had a few of these, but not real good. More for local calls.
The Mobile phone was dominant.
Making a call is frustrating. But more correctly for me.
I travel for years. The normal cost of room for is between 2 and 8 dollars.
To make a phone call is to use a months worth of Hotel room.
It is the value of money. It is easy to want to conserve money when you travel. If you know that you can live for one more year by not making telephone calls.
INTERNATIONAL INTERNET ACCESS IS BULLSHIT ALSO.
Unless you are staying in the Hilton and money is not problem.
SATELLITE TELEPHONE IS ONLY TRUE SOLUTION.
I try to be test case for them, but so far no one has ask me to checkout their satellite telephone systems. hmm Free!
