Yesterday we had a Skype conference with three of the four partners due to start Waveplace pilots in January. Collectively we decided to push the dates back three weeks to give us a safe distance from the January 16th runoff election.

Sarita from AMURT says that the last week have been very bad in her neighborhood, which is where the workshop would be taking place. Many of the protesters are located around her. There is constant shouting, singing, some gunfire, etc.

I’ll resume the countdown, and daily posts, when we’re a month out from the trip. Currently it looks like we’ll arrive in Haiti on January 27th, though this is uncertain at this point. Till then, I hope things calm down and that everyone remains safe.
