"And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling."

My experience in Minnesota was the best adventure ever!!! From the wild waters of Minnehaha to the iconic and urban Twin Cities, what a fantastic experience we all had. We explored the state's historic and science museums; the infrastructure and development of the cities is amazing. 

For me, going there really opened my eyes to the many opportunities they have and how organized their development is. It challenged me to make a change regarding how we do things in Kenya. By visiting one of their schools, I learned how lively their classes are and how much exposure they get. After going on a tour of the Mississippi River, and seeing how much cleaner it is than our rivers yet, I see Minnesota is an industrial place. 

Meeting my colleagues from the other side of GDW was one of the best experiences. We shared experiences, ideas, and most importantly, made strong bonds with each other. I hope to see y'all soon!!!!
