Elections and Kanakoo

There will be municipal elections held this weekend. I'm probably not supposed to talk about that much. All it really means for volunteers though is that we can't travel anywhere.

In other news, the government telecom company turned on the internet-via-cell-tower thing in the two biggest cities in the region. Already a new cyber cafe opened up which is 25% cheaper than the satellite ones (a satellite connection costs over $400/month, the new thing is slower but costs around $50/month). This is pretty cool because a lot of NGOs and government offices have computers but until now there's been no economical way for them to get on the Internet.
