mobile libraries on mules and wireless under the banana trees

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/from_our_own_correspondent/6929404.stm

Mules are being used as mobile libraries (bibliomulas) by Universidad Valle del Momboy in Venezuela to take books, laptops and projectors to rural communities on the Andes that would otherwise be hard to reach.
