Our Final Adventures
Victories, sad realizations and some time for reflection
Our time here in Hluhluwe is coming to a close and we have never felt three weeks fly by so fast. It feels like we know every road, every alley of this place and it will be a strange experience leaving. But now we are getting ahead of ourselves as there has been a lot […]
Becoming a Hacker
Work continues in South Africa as we retraced our steps back to a school we had visited the very first week, namely Bonga High School. Where we once sadly had to turn back at the doorstep we were now invited to check on their computer lab which were having some difficulties. Once we arrived at […]
Programmers in Hluhluwe
With our white car now replaced by a glistening blue we felt prepared to go back to work. Early Thursday morning we started our day at Mduku High School who had requested some help from us, but we did not know with what. After a half-hour drive we arrived at Mduku for a positive surprise: […]
Back to School
Since Saturday we have had a lot of things to do. Apparently our stay here is really bad timed with several national holidays when the schools are closed. Last week they were closed because of the election and yesterday was the National Women’s Day here in South Africa. Since this happened on a Tuesday, Monday […]
Hippo dental work on election day
The election is over and it is finally time to get to work! Even with the computers still stuck in customs there is plenty of work to be done which we were eager to start with. We had heard that there was a school located up in the mountains that CESA had visited two years […]
The best of welcomes
The last two days have been more vacation than work. Yesterday we went to Star for Life’s office in the morning and waited for them to contact the head of the area where there are schools that need help with their existing computers. After a long wait we were informed that there would be no […]
Finally on our way!
Yesterday, after a 33 hour journey, we finally arrived at the guest house we will call home the next three weeks. Before getting to Hluhluwe Simon bravely took it upon himself to drive, which would be a challenge since you drive on the left side of the road in South Africa. He did great and […]
MASSIVE UPDATE: Receiving, cleaning, installing, packing, shipping and.. dancing?
Right now we’re at the airport in Istanbul on our way to Durban! We have a waiting time of more than 9 hours here until the flight departs tonight, so we will have a lot of time to relax and prepare for South Africa. We are super excited and can’t wait to get to Hluhluwe […]
Working with the computers and our next sponsor, Opera!
The blog has been silent for far too long but here is the long awaited post! Since the last post in March a lot have happened and the journey to South Africa is soon upon us. In the beginning of March we got the first computers from Gothenburg City Västra Hisingen which was almost 150 […]
This monday we went to Opera’s office for a sponsor meeting. We are really happy to announce Opera as a sponsor for the third year in a row! At the meeting we discussed the project and had a really nice time when getting to know our contact Lisa and Niklas a bit. Thank you Opera, […]
