Day 2 with Unleash Kids in Haiti

A report for the day:

We woke up this morning and worked on installing the new software on 30 XOs (that process included fixing screens, testing microphones, and charging too of course).

After that we walked to pick up Ruben Magloire, who arrived from his school in Croix des Bouquets, and Mario Calixte. Mario is a Haitian who went to school at Virginia Tech to study computer science. Mario will be helping to install Internet-in-a-Box at a school in the south… We got in touch with him by connecting with Denny, who lives in my state (Virginia) and has already deployed more than 700 Linux computers (not XOs, but similar system) here in Haiti.

Denny Baumann holds the $150 Internet-in-a-Box device.

On our walk we photographed various street scenes and picked up some lunch.
