very real deal! 2 called via Skype from Italy today, way cool. Especially the free part, going computer to computer. After a few minutes, we had some problems because of a cheap headset I bought for the house, so she called the house phone at 2 cents a minute. Great quality, just as good as a regular land line. Sweet.
She sounded great, much better than the last call. Still doesn’t care much for her host family but she seems to be having a great time otherwise. And learning an awful lot about the world. She’s headed for Paris to meet up with a high school friend that is going to school there.
Oh, and methinks she’s a chip off the old block!
