Mountain WiFi

A brief note on WiFi connection in the Himalayas. When you ask your lodge if they have WiFi, they reply “mountain WiFi”.

This means: works for about a total of two hours a day, sometimes very well, but only in spurts of about 10 minutes. Power is often out in the Himalaya, and so this also cuts the router.

Sometimes the WiFi is painfully slow as you share it with 30 other lodge guests.

Still can’t believe we get WiFi!

Final note- apologies for typos, grammatical errors and any lack of fluency in the blog posts. I write them on the notes section of my iPhone, and this makes it quite difficult to write and edit! Often when I notice the mistakes, the mountain WiFi has ceased to work to correct them!
