This sounds like a good achievement. An idea to extend this to multiple
locations might be to have two wifi adapters on the system, one running
the typical infrastructure mode and the other running batman-adv with a
network bridge set up between the two. Then you could maybe do VoIP
between villages in a way which doesn't require any special additional
configuration and which doesn't depend upon existing telcos.

I will probably try making something like this as a test system to see
how feasible it is.
