T-43: The Very Beginning

This will be a short update, and probably the only one for the weekend – we’re all headed out of town because of extracurriculur activities. Right now, we’re working on several things. Our first set of OLPC paperwork is due tomorrow. We’re also trying to book the cheapest flights we’ve seen in a while – it looks like we’ll have a lengthy layover in Johannesburg on our way to/from both Kigali and Tana, but we’re okay with that. It also means we’re routed through an anglophone country, which is a bit less daunting.

We just received our Malagasy visa applications. Fortunately, the embassy is very close (up on Mass Ave), so we can drop them off and pay in person next week.

We’re also hoping to receive our XOs next week – OLPC is sending us 4 (one each) – and begin to play with the software.

Still trying to find an efficacious way to fundraise online. Another OLPCorps group has set up a Facebook Cause; we’re hoping to do that as well. We also are trying to get a PayPal button.
