So we found an Internet cafe near the train station, so we can occasionally communicate via e-mail. It will be easier to communicate with us over the phone. Our US home number now should forward to the cottage in France. This costs us nothing and costs you nothing more than calling a 919 area code number. We are six hours ahead of EDT, so 2 PM in NC is 8 PM here (a good time to call). It will also ring the house also if you want to call Sarah. Thank you Vonage.
