We have a new episode up in the Archive. Recall that about six months ago, we interviewed the coffee buyer and consultant, Ben Carlson. Ben was about to launch an independent initiative to increase the profile of Burundian coffee around the world. You can hear that interview in Episode 24 in the Archive. At the time, Ben was just arriving and bubbling with enthusiasm for his project and its possible outcomes. Well, flash forward six months now. Ben is a grizzled veteran of many attempts, delays and, yes, battles to get his project going. Listen in to our fourth installment in the Coffee series as Ben describes his first six months of trying to set up a small business in Burundi.
And now is a good time to introduce our revamped Restaurants page. We are making this into a destination for people living in or just curious about Bujumbura. People are always wondering about places to eat out at. Well, for the first time ever, residents can now access the Restaurants page to see photos of places we have visited, listen to our reviews and, best of all, see a detailed map of each restaurant’s location – all in one location! We will be updating this map regularly, so check back in to hear more about Bujumbura’s many dining options. Muryoherwe, tout le monde!
Here’s a sample view of the map. Go to the Restaurants page for the link to the full version.
