When in Afghanistan, we were training some local agricultural workers in how to develop better messages for famers. We were in the agricultural research station in Kabul, called Badam Bagh, and we were interviewing farmers and asked them to comment on our factsheets. Their comments are invaluable in order to promote a consistent and understandable message for the farming community. This agricultural worker was doing an excellent job in listening to the farmer. He was concentrating very hard, and I find it makes a good photo!
Wondering around the area of Kitale in Western Kenya, we came across a school lunch hour when we were actually doing some field work. The kids came out in droves and ducked for shelter during a heavy rain spell. We were in our vehicle and the rain just kept falling… Hope you like the picture. Over the course of the two days, we saw 1500 farmers and gave out vital information about a particularly nasty disease in Kenya on maize: Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease (sounds bad as well!)
Went out today for a lovely meal in Kabul city centre in the Shar-E-Nahr district. Had an amazing kebab and curry, as well as gorgeous oranges and apples.
Loving the Afghani vibe at the moment. Going there for lunch tomorrow for sure!
