Today my mom and I had an interesting Skype chat with some of our relatives in Hungary. My cousin had his father visiting his family and he thought that my mom (his father’s wife’s sister) would enjoy a brief video chat to say hi and find out how things are going in both countries.
While the chat itself got a bit frustrating, and at times hilarious, because neither my mom nor her brother-in-law could hear or understand each other very clearly, stuff like this still amazes me. My mom and I were video chatting with members of our family in a city 12,390 miles (19,940 km) away. On the other side of our planet. For free.
Sometimes technology can be a real hair-puller-outer, but today it was just marvelous.
