    Hi,

    Nice picture. I was in Sierra Leone last summer for my research and it was a challenge getting to connect to the other side of the world via the internet connection there. Also I came across computer training institutes that were converted to cyber cafes during business hours. I saw a lot of progress but they are still far. On the other hand, the moment I landed, I was able to connect with my family in the US via my local cellphone in seconds unlike the US where it takes one forever to get a prepaid card. Keep the good work flowing!
