How people are living their lives

Today we've had a guest lecturer at our workshop, as my good friend Maggid Mjengwa joined us for the morning session. Maggid is an adult trainer based in Iringa, but also political columnist for the weekly Raia Mwema newspaper and one of Tanzania's most famous bloggers.

So Maggid has showed us his blog and explained how he is doing it, how he started, some examples of the commentaries the blog encourages as well as other features. Maggid's blog is a photo blog with daily postings from everyday life in Tanzania, both rural and urban. The photos show people's happiness and resourcefulness even in sometimes difficult conditions. True images from Africa.

In the afternoon participants will add images to their last postings. Wait and see.
