Tanzania and Kenya

Why not a journey where work and social life could be combined? This time me and my family made field-trips in Tanzania and Kenya for the purpose of learning. During these days I also used time for follow-up on ongoing projects, discussion and planning for future ones. This journey has been very memorable since the whole family had the chance - and with good guides - to see the society from "within". For sure, the need for "another development" is there.
