Perth, WA

WA has been a wonderful experience for us, enjoying Carolyn's cheerful company and lovely sights of Perth City and the SW corner which is my fav part of Oz. I was also able to attend a 2 day conference for the Kenya diaspora here.. about 15000 Kenyans are in Australia, approx. About $120m USD is remitted on average, every MONTH,to Kenya from the diaspora worldwide. This is huge. There are lots of issues about citizenship and voting in elections, about inward investment, about how to harness the skills of those living at a distance..I enjoyed meeting as many as possible.. a great vibe.
