“First Encounters”

Posted by imagineburundi on November 7, 2011

November 7, 2011

We’ve posted this week’s clips to the Archive page. The theme this week is “First Encounters.” We often look at the lives of people in Burundi, but what about Burundians living and working abroad? For this episode, we were very lucky to get to know Jocelyne Sambira, a Producer for United Nations Radio, and she described for us her first experience of  living in a metropolis. It’s vast, it’s grand, it’s strange, it’s mundane, it’s definitely different –  it’s New York.

Jocelyne is a big advocate for the transformative power of radio and one of her articles really resonated with us. You can read her thoughts here.

On the Restaurant Review, Seth and Jeff revisit the place where they met years ago: the well-known cafe Aroma. If you’re trying to keep a low profile or run a small-time criminal network, this may not be the place to be.
