Oh, internet, you little beast …
In case you noticed I was absent from the blog world for most of the week resulting in no posts uhtil now – and it was not because of this. The reason? When I returned from another day trip on Tuesday the internet didn’t work anymore. Neither did the telephone [for the whole village]. Why exactly we don’t know but it took our internet provider until Friday afternoon to get it working again.
But you didn’t come here to hear me ramble in frustration [four days without any internet access are hard though!]. Anyway, the lack of access meant I didn’t read many posts this week so today’s collection of links is smaller than usual but no less amazing.
