Worship no more


Trying to make a connection with the satellite is like praying to God. Well, to be fair from time to time the satellite is willing to answer but only under certain circumstances. No buildings, trees, or anything tall nearby.
After one night in C. Pellegrini where mosquitoes made an honorable attempt to kill me, I was able to connect my satellite phone. (With the help of my amante.)
Some people who drove by thought we were repairing the jeep, others believed we were praying to Allah.
The satellite is as cruel as God and therefore I decided not to worship the satellite anymore.
