Kenya / 0.4571˚ S, 39.6386˚ E / Garissa Camel Library (1)

Just back from the outback around Garissa for reports on a Camel Library. Prepared for the worst but got the best tarmac road: six and a half hours from Nairobi. The more than hundred NGO’s working here are using proper fourwheeldrives to deliver their aid to the needy. The local Nomad Palace is happy with the clientele. Development workers around means workshops! The Kenyan National Library Service delivers books to the needy, with camels. Why? Because camels are better accepted than other ways of delivery according one of the spokesmen of the libray. Interesting he? Audio and pictures will be posted soon. Have a cultural and literate day!
