i wish such a gesture of perfection could be emulated in uganda. where one does something with "affectionate passion for perfection".
Good piece for taking us where we couldnt reach--- the style.
More pliz.

Uganda will not regret having sent you there. It is a great challenge to a Ugandan scribe who cannot dig beyond the headlines.

Anyway it was a pleasure to have you along - and to meet you all again on the demo - and I hope I can stay in touch with everybody from the Africa Vox team.
