A real Christmas miracle is happening in my country these days. The Internet is becoming faster and faster, in a country where the painfully slow dial-up was the norm just a few years ago. UCom (the provider I use at home) announced it was doubling the connection speed as a “winter special.” I am in Multi Rest House in Tsaghkadzor today, and the connection here is also very fast. For those who don’t know, it used to be virtually non-existent there. I really do not know the reasons for this sudden change, but I definitely welcome this development and hope it will be permanent.
