    During my short stop in Oslo on my Nordic tour, I met friend Jonni, a graphic designer/photographer, who has always been helpful when it comes to gadgets and geeky stuff. He has been collecting together hardware items for us to take to Africa to improve the media-lab in ENAV. So, I left Oslo with heavy bags of cables, memories, digital boards, wi-fi’s and even one good Nicon digital camera. It was quite complicated to make it through the weapons control in airport, but in the end all went well. This stuff is donated by Jonni and friend Halvor Bodin and we are very thankful for their generosity. Soley was excited when I unpacked my bags on returning and we are putting the stuff to good use. Poor Soley has been fighting a loosing battle to get more hardware support from her school or the Ministry of Education here in Maputo. It is a very slow and democratic process of tendering, contracts, evaluations etc. etc. It is a game that still goes on. We have also been to meetings in our embassies to try to find ways of funding something, even small donations to buy computers for the media-lab, but so far to no success.
