MTN Dongle!
September 9, 2010

I have arrived safely in  Rwanda, the land of a thousand hills. I’m currently based in Kicukiro, a suburb of the capital city Kigali. It is about 12km from the city centre which is  30-40 minutes by mini bus taxi or matutu as they are known.

I have managed to buy a dongle which will allow me to access the internet via the national MTN mobile network. It means I won’t be dependent on using internet cafes for checking emails or posting on the outofafrica2010 blog.  

There are 19 VSO volunteers staying at the Hostel Amani where we are receiving quite intensive but enjoyable in country training.

I have been keeping a hand written daily log and hope to make a more detailed posting before next wednesday when I set off for my placement in the Kirehe district, 2-3 hours south-east of Kigali.
