This is Tony Ndungu, my new best friend. He’s the guy who quickly patched up the 2.5 inch gash in my skull the other day as I almost knocked myself out on a lower-than-average restroom door frame (building regulations aren’t followed that closely in Kenya).
Tony and I were on our way out of Nairobi for a meeting by Plan International on how social media can be used for social change (SM4SC). They do a lot of work with youth all over Africa, so it makes sense that they’re trying to get a handle on how they can use the mobile phone and the web to connect better and have a greater impact with that demographic.
The best part of this is that the medical bill came out to 1300/= shillings (about $16.25) for a doctor and nurse to clean it, bandage me up, give a tetanus shot, and some painkillers. Imagine that!
Maybe all those years of strengthening my skull bones playing rugby paid off… 🙂
