The Spread of Technology!

I was travelling with my friend Sam and his family and friends for his families’ genocide commemoration. The commemoration took place WAY out in the Southern Province, very far from anything. Our bus caught a flat tire and while we waiting for someone to drive back to the city to get a replacement a group of children surrounded us and luckily I had my XO laptop with me. I showed it off to the kids and they were so excited. It was hard to communicate because they did not know English and I know only a very few words in Kinyarwanda. I first showed them Record and they all laughed and smiled after seeing their faces reflected back to them. But after a few moments, one boy shouted “open Microsoft Word!” How he knew about this, I don’t know!
