We did it!!
The other day I posted a note from a friend in Norcia who runs a business that gives internet and other kinds of computer-related services to most of the town. His shop was in the centro right next to the Basilica and he has been unable to get it going again since the whole town has been red-zoned.
He was raising funds to buy a portable and today announced that the shop, ABC-Online is back up and running, and soon will get started with the work of getting Norcia back online.
I know that many of my readers contributed very generously to this campaign, and I wanted to thank you all personally. Having internet and communications won’t just make it possible for me to go home sooner than expected, it will help bring the whole town back to life.
