[Dshield] internet cafe's

On a trip recently to the boondocks, I stayed in a hotel with no 
phones or internet and my cell phone was in dark territory.  There 
were  2 internet cafes in town and neither would allow hooking up my 
laptop so I was forced to use their windoze machine.  I spent the 
first 20 minutes online running free antivirus checkers and spyware 
checkers before checking webmail.  Luckily I setup a bogus webmail 
account that was getting copies of my mail from my mailserver so I 
checked that one.  The next day I changed that webmail password when 
I was in a new location with direct access using ssh and vpn.

My question is does anyone have an idea of a better/safer way to 
handle this type of situation short of a sat phone? I will be going 
overseas in a couple of months and my understanding is that direct 
'net access is much more problematic than it is here in north america.
