solomon islands

Having just spent a couple of days in a phone shadow spot in Hereford, I loved this from an article in Oxford today about round-the-world boating:
‘You’d be surprised how few places are now out of reach of cheap, instant communication – although our first landfall in the Solomon Islands, the remote island of Santa Ana, the locals complained they had to paddle a mile offshore in a dugout to reach a spot where their mobiles could pick up a signal.’ (says Nick Coghlan)
I don’t know if this is funny or sad – maybe both.
