After spending more than 1 month in Kenya/Tanzania, I am finally leaving Africa - the continent full of impressive nature, friendly people and enormous hopes. I miss Africa. I will definitely be back soon – for sure for the animal migration.
This was a picture taken when we went to Sunday church service in Kenya. Praying for Kenya for a peaceful election in 2012 December. Hopefully less tribal conflicts and more peace.
One thing I learnt and which has a tremendous impact on me: is the positive energy and optimism of Africa. No matter how limited the resources available in Africa, people never give up, but instead come up with innovative business model to accommodate this limitation. For example, there is very limited internet access and not very good infrastructure in Africa. Online banking and even branch banking is not available for everyone. Safaricom (one of the telecom companies in Kenya) came up with the idea of mobile money product (called M-Pesa) for Kenyans to send money back home through mobile phone. It is impressive to learn from how people turn limitation of resources into positive energy in creating innovative business model.
