Don't tell the Hotel Latvia
When I turned on my laptop and logged on to the Lattelekom WiFi hotspot in the Hotel Reval Latvija with a WiFi card I bought with a credit card from hotel staff, I was sure there had been a mistake. I was told I had a zillion (more like 1440) minutes remaining on the net. Sūdiralla, I thought (I won't use English profanity here, yet), now they've hit me for LVL 9.95, but WTF, I can use it up by hanging around former IT person Nick Ustinov's coffee joints (Double Coffee) or something like that. Well, tonight I found the check, and it was for LVL 0.94. Whoops, card sellers! Don't tell them.
