Hi Paul,

I fear we cannot help you much right now - This is not because we are
a strictly bureaucratic group, but because we are simply very tight on
money. Many other people have requested us similar help, and we just
cannot provide for it.

Lodging at Oaxtepec, however, is very cheap - If you stay with other
people, a room will be at about US$10 a night, and food will be about
another US$10. Please get in touch with sponsorship@debconf.org so you
can be arranged in a spare bed with other people.

We cannot lodge you at a hammock - We are staying at a hotel, and they
will charge for the amount of people we have, even if you just sleep
on the grass.
