When you travel, you often meet incredible people. Joseph Mwakima is one of those people, a fellow busy fostering change in Kenya's Kasigau Corridor REDD+ Project area on behalf of Wildlife Works. He is really the ultimate community manager. Here is his story.
Special thanks to Audi USA for supporting Wildlife Works and sending me to Kenya to tell this incredible story.
Meet Joseph Mwakima, a fellow busy activating his community and inspiring change in Kenya's Kasigau Corrdidor REDD+ Project area through word of mouth.

"Joseph works in the community to socialize the solutions and encourage adoption of them."  'socialize solutions' -- a root solution for so much if applied.  I love this!! :-)

Happy #IndependenceDay ! I've always loved this quote from Bill Clinton's first inaugural address in 1993: "There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America." #4thofJuly

So true. 
At +Business Innovation Factory they call it a RCUS. Random collison of unusual suspects. I like to call it tactical serendipity. (thanks +Angela Maiers
 
We don’t have to know what coincidences mean, or arrive at some grand conclusion when we encounter them. But they serve as sporadic reminders to maintain our sense of wonder, to stop every now and again and allow ourselves to be fully present in the moment and open to life’s mystery. They’re a sort of forced reboot. #ThriveOCourse

Imagine the time and training it takes to prepare to ride a bike for 300 miles in 3 days.

Thanks Tim.  Another sign of too much trauma on this end. It appears my capacity for risk is at zero these days.

When someone knocks on the door, think that he's about 
To give you something large: tell you you're forgiven, 
Or that it's not necessary to work all the time, or that it's 
Been decided that if you lie down no one will die.

Service was not the fastest, but since we weren't in a hurry didn't mind. Quality of the food was good. We enjoyed the shrimp fajitas. Used a corn tortilla instead of flour, which I am used to, and also had mushrooms. Good flavor overall. The sangria was good, but not the best. Guacamole is made table side and very fresh. Would definitely return.
