Subject: Re: Long Distance Calling from Mexico
Hi Pat and Pauline,

Caution when using Canada Direct. Our son called us twice from Russia (Kaliningrad) when on a youth volunteer program. When my husband looked at the bill, he thought they put an extra digit in by mistake!

We didn't tell my son about the cost when he was away - in case he didn't call when he really needed to. However his last call was extremely business-like. No "motherly" chitchat!

Moral of the story - check the costs for the specific country.
