A wonderful thing has happened in the global village. The appearance of Internet Cafes, also referred to as CyberCafes.  They are usually just normal cafes that have also installed some computers you can use while you are there. Isn't that wonderful?  And now they may also have WiFi connections so you just bring your own computer, iPhone or whatever and surf the web.

CyberCafes or Internet Cafes, as they are also called, include places where you can usually eat or drink and also get on the Internet to check email and do other things while traveling almost anywhere in the world.   Whether you have your own laptop or need to use one, you can find a place that offers this service in most airports and hotels of many cities of the world.  Now that WiFi is becoming prevalent, even economy motels are offering at least wireless connections even if they may not have a computer for you to use in the lobby.  Most internet service providers offer a web-based email service you can use when on the road by merely going to their web email server and logging on.
