For the last month or so my Mom has been in Costa Rica as a chaperon for a study abroad program. She’s in a part of the world where English is barely spoken, ice is a luxury, phone service is nearly non-existent, and driving is an art form.
Twenty years ago she would basically have been out of touch from anyone back home, save the occasional expensive phone call.
Today? She’s bothered by the fact that her kids aren’t emailing her enough.
In case you needed more proof that the world is, in fact, getting smaller there it is.
