Scandinavia…

Before I wrote about the experience in South America and even North America whereby I encounter people who doesn’t know the country called Tanzania, it was more surprising for Peru where I couldn’t secure visa but I brought into their attention the existence of Tanzania. In Norway it was very different lots of old people remember Tanzania very well with memory of Mwalimu Nyerere visiting their king time to time. Nyerere end up adopting social democracy which he blend with his philosophy, ‘Ujamaa’. I think no matter what was short come but this help Tanzania to attain national institutionwhich luck in so many other African country.

 I cycle with Tanzanian flag, yes I love it colors. In may cases I have to clarify to people that is not Jamaica and neither South Africa this lead to other questionsI end up explain about this Tanzania something which make me start to feel my strong conviction with this community. It is the community which influence me in different ways, it is this community inspired me to do what I’m doing now.  It iin scandinavian countries I find my connection again, Norwegians remind me we can add amazing value to the resources which will lead to quality life and hence health environment though in some point we will have to be nature fanatics! Swedish, the second happiest people in the earth! note sure about the qualification and measure but I find out that the trust and assurance is so high no matter how less or more the have. Denmark with politics growing more sophisticate, I had encounter with may who has lots of thoughts in the social-economy which I think it is great option for developing countries like Tanzania.

 I enjoyed the cycling awareness which is amazingly developed in the cities, extremely in Copenhagen. In this city cycling is just another modal of transportation which enjoy the same recognition the same as car. Two lane for bike each side of road, fast line and slow one, there is even traffic light just for bikes! About 60% of people in Copenhagen are bicycle commuter, to control this bicycle traffic there is number of laws which are well enforced. Crossing light when it red or other violation will lead to € 100 fine.  

Hospitality..

Due to the high life quality and economy system of scandinavians the prices of nearly everything are so high. Without a help of so many friends and strangers who turn to friends it could be impossible to travel in these countries. I’m grateful for each and everyone of you for your kindness and invaluable support to me and my initiative. You are hospitality has lifted my spirt when I faces weather and other challengers, your material support had give me the strength to pedal. Together we are making changes!
