Personal highlights

  1. Bungoma: rural township with 60'000 inhabitants (= medium city in Switzerlandinfo-icon)
  2. Transport: everybody is cycling - to get around, transport goods or even people
  3. Bicycle: hijacking a taxi-bike and exploring the township at a very slow speed
  4. Market: riding once around the market and getting friendly greeted by everyone
  5. Technology: coming here to interview local solar sales agents for SunKing lights
