Here, Jo listens anxiously as an ICCN guard makes history by talking with Kinshasa, while much of the village looks on from outside. In a time where cell phones, wireless Internet, and other means of modern communication are commonplace, it was fascinating to see the enthusiasm behind the installation of a simple radio.
