Inter… net?

What is with the Internet in Seville? It is virtually impossible to find an internet café. Generally I need wireless access for my laptop, which is hard enough to find without sacrificing a good tapas meal and eating at a crappy American Tex Mex bar with some Yank hollering baseball on five different TVs just so you can use their Wi-Fi as a paying customer, but this time I need to print my voucher for my car rental in Portugal. I spent half the day going to five different addresses listed in various guides, and there was no trace of any one operation. Apparently they start up and shut down like dot com bubbles here, which is really strange, as if Seville is one place in the world the Internet just hasn’t caught on.
