How I Post My Stories

How I post my stories

  1. Internet cafes with regular power supply
  2. Use of satellite dish in remote areas
  3. Internet cafes at centers
  4. Satellite phone
  5. Internet powered by solar panels

In internet cafes, the farther you are, the more expensive. In Lukla, site of the airport.

Khumjung, transmitted via satellite dish.

Our cafe Namche Bazaar where they give special discounts to Pinoys at 600 Rupees per hour. The operator was infatuated with Janet that he allows us to transfer our memory card to our hard disks for a song. In Thamel, Katmandu it is 15 Rupees per hour, slightly more than 12 pesos.

Via satellite phone relayed to a party in Manila at P 15.0 per minute using a pre paid Smart Link card. Battery charging is from 100 to 200 Rupees per hour. The inn owners use expensive solar panels to generate their power supply.
Spot the 4 satellite panels on top of the roof at our Lobuche Lodge at 4,930 meters ASL. 3 of our porters relaxing. Temperature at about 10 degrees C.
