Everybody’s in short sleeves and there’s no money on Fridays. There’s nothing happening on the road so I pull into McDonald’s for the WiFi and answer some emails from a client. I’m overbooked this month and no amount of gadget shopping buys me any time. Spent all day staring at the back of a fucking Skyline on Galle Road, but I a) got an iPod and b) hooked it up to the car stereo. Stop-and-Go gives me more time to changes songs. The iPod Video is slim and beautiful, but the thing really does scratch like a kitten. Sounds nice though, and it sounds much better than the preamp in the car. Started listening to the Cure in the bright morning but switched to Depeche Mode as the traffic got worse. Lost track of where I was and ended up in Dehiwela. I know that traffic warps the fabric of time, I think it does something to space as well.
This is a useless post, guess the only useful info is that Colombo has enough WiFi hotspots that I can almost get most vital communications done on the road. I use the McDo in Colombo 03 the most, followed by Barefoot. Barefoot is nicer and I can eat there more than once a week, but the staff is only vaguely aware that they even have WiFi. Have to get the access code from lady in the office. Barista on Galle Road is also kosher in my experience. Speeds are pretty gd fast, though I haven’t tried downloading music here. It is really nice, however, to be able to write a post and respond to some emails out of the house.
