We had problems, but mostly at the US end.

They suddenly decided they couldn't get down our drive and had to hire a smaller truck - we never saw the larger one - so that cost us extra. Then we...

Re: Getting a US phone contract?

You can pay $15 extra a month with T-Mobile and get unlimited international mobile and landline calls as well. Thats enough of a reason to go with them.

$300 is under £200. For a week? Sounds about right. Wait until you see the price of a full residential summer camp. It can be over $1000

Re: Moving to Boston - which town?

Re: Framingham, Massachusetts
