Suprisingly enough, it’s pretty easy to stay connected when you’re in town. There are quite a few internet cafes and a handful of places that offer wi-fi for the price of a drink. The best time to go to an internet cafe is pretty much anytime other that when school gets out (between 3 and 5). During these times, you get a slow connection and places are crowded. The price is usually 5bz an hour, but there is cheaper.
Many of the cafes also do repairs and sell parts and accessories. One thing you need to keep an eye out for here is viruses. If you are using a flash drive or even connecting a camera card there is a super high chance that you will get some unhappy extras on your drive. Be sure to scan it when you finish. If you don’t know how, ask the clerk at the store.
