Jeroen was up in the forest cutting goat food last week when a white van drew up asking for me. Unbelievably, they had 21 telephone posts with them and proceeded to erect them all the way along the track. On Friday afternoon another white van appeared and attached our brand new land line telephone.
You can’t see me I know, but I’m doing a rather happy dance as I write this. We paid for this line in August 2008 and were close to giving up on ever seeing it. That’s thirty one months of frustration at the hands of Portugal’s most useless organisation, PT. They’ve claimed to have no knowledge of me, cut me off, lied to me, made me send them the same documents over and over, broken promises ….
Needless to say, they’re refusing to attach us to the net. But we’re determined. Watch this space!
In the meantime, you’ll find our new landline number on the Get in Touch page if you need it.
