Commas 02
"Far away from home I met wonderful people, tasted interesting food and experienced physics from a different point of view. On the cultural and social level these two semesters in JKUAT have taught me a lot. To find new friends in Kenya is not difficult since people are very open minded. In Physics my most important experience has been a research project on new solar energy concepts. Which place can be better for that than in Kenya?"
