I really should go and get my camera and upload a picture of this... I'm sitting in the dark in my living room. There's no electricity, and in order for this network to work, I need electricity. So I have a network of extension cords snaking its way over here. All the equipment is set up on a temporary desk. I'm sitting on a makeshift chair--a few planks put together. But I'm connected. And I'm smiling from ear to ear.
As I'm sitting here, I hear crickets outside my door. And in the distance I can hear some of the kids making their way to their dorms after dinner. A dog is barking somewhere. The sky is a dark shade of blue and the first stars are appearing. I don't have windows yet, or a door. But I have walls and a roof, even a ceiling. The window frames were painted with a primer today, so the white paint stands out against the evening sky. There's a slight breeze.
I love having access to the world from my little corner of Kenya.
Does it show?
