Orientation at the Koins Community Center and the SRA Agriculture Projects
The traffic coming out of Mombasa was horrific. It took us a couple of hours to make it to the Koins Community Center. At one point we were stopped and saw two motorcycles collide as they drove on the side of the road. One motorcycle was knocked to the side and hit a young lady knocking here into the ditch. Fortunately she was not seriously hurt. The roads are narrow and congested and the motorcycles often whiz along on the edge of the road instead of sitting in traffic. It really makes me appreciate the roads that we have in the US. At the same time, we could learn some lessons about good communication from the Kenyan drivers. They use proper hand signals, the horn, windshield wipers, and many other means to communicate with each other.
