Today met the whole ICT team and got a grand tour of the facilities.  The people here are really friendly, smart and happy.  They are all enthusiastic and look forward to the future, further more are eager to learn from the ex-pats and look forward to being part of the network.  They are all quite competent as far as computing skills go and are studying for their MCSE.  Biodun, Adenekan, and Ezioma are the primary team.

After checking out the network and the setup it was quickly evident that some changes needed to be done.  I reconfigured some routing and configured ISA to channel all traffic over the fiber link.  We’ll see how it goes tomorrow and whether people actually notice any changes.

The MD, Jim took us all out to a Chinese restaurant for an official welcome.  The food was good and I ate way too much.  I also sampled my first Nigerian beer, Star.  I have to say that it wasn’t too bad so I kept ordering it.

Went back to the hotel and had a cigar with Hans, Ian and a nice bottle of scotch.  Smooth.
