kenya: land of swahili

One significant visual difference between Kenya and Ethiopia is the number of roadside businesses. From electronics repair to knife sharpening, and wood furniture construction to metalwork and motorcycle repair, the small business entrepreneurial spirit is very strong. If there's a need or requirement for something, someone will open a business to sell it. Kenya was the birthplace of M-Pesa, a mobile phone-based money transfer service. It allows businesses and consumers to deposit, withdraw, and transfer money, and to easily pay for goods and services. This convenient technology has helped grow and empower small business in Kenya and other regions of Africa. Tilapia is plentiful in Lake Naivasha, where wading fishermen typically catch them by rod or net. Dangerous territorial hippos also populate these waters, so fishermen are constantly wary of their presence and steer clear of them. Set in the suburbs of Nairobi, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust cares for and rehabilitates elephants that have been orphaned due to poaching. Over 200 infant elephants have been successfully hand-raised, with over 100 re-introduced into wild herds. Here, infants and juveniles receive their noon feeding.
