2. Take a taxi to the town next door and pay at the bank. They'll transfer your payment for free.
3. Do it all online from your house with the bank's online billpay.
The problem is that to use the online features at our Peruvian bank right now, you need to have a new USB key thing. We have tried half a dozen times to acquire said USB key. The last time we tried, we were informed that the bank is out of the things nation-wide and more are being ordered from the US. Meanwhile it's been at least a month since we've been able to use online bill-pay.
The other problem is that when we went to the bank recently, they couldn't find any record that we owed the phone company money. No bill to pay.
That was apparently an error, because our phone and internet were cut off yesterday. Suprise! Tim is off to the town next door to try the bank method again. If that doesn't work, he'll hop on the bus to go to the phone company's office. Oh boy.
I'm glad Grace and Cesar have wireless internet and are willing to share it with me, but I'm still putting off longer emails for a few days I think. If you need me, send me an email and be patient. We have no phone access (home or skype) until this gets resolved.
