Contact with Lesotho Embassy in Washington DC

I spoke on the phone with First Secretary 'M'e Matoka Phori of the Lesotho Embassy in Washington DC on Tuesday, Sept 21.  She was happy to hear about our project and was very helpful.  We had a very pleasant conversation.  Here's what we discussed: 
  • L2L does not need to register with the government in Lesotho.
  • Craig & I do not need work visas because we are staying less than 3 months.
  • The Lesotho Government will waive customs fees for Laptops to Lesotho.  I need to send them more information, then they will notify the border officials.
  • 'M'e Matoka is going to make inquiries about the best computer and electronics stores to do business with.
