There is a weekend Farmer's Market within walking distance of our apartment! It has a nice selection of veggies, fruit, and fish (fresh & dried) but NO SCONES or live music or hula hooping... Hmmm... The music behind the video was written (and recorded by Lapping Studios) for the Farmer's Market back home where Pine Scones has a definite presence!
If you ever thought that everyone who puts on rags is a mad man then you are wrong. In Luanda market in Vihiga county, one man has invented a unique way of earning a living. The man popularly known as Daudi Otieno puts on rags and walks bare foot to create an impression that he is living in abject poverty. By doing so , motorists and traders in the market give him money and food. But believe it or not, the man is not insane and that is just a way of surviving. We met this man on a day he is on duty and when he is off duty and found out that there are two Daudi Otieno's, a normal one and the abnormal one.

Mercado Kinaxixe: http://br.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=kutangar Data de Construção: 1950/1952 Autor - Arquitecto Vasco Vieira da Costa O mercado Kinaxixe é uma das obras mais emblemáticas deste arquitecto e da arquietctura com influências Corbusianas, que maior valor internacional, haverá no território angolano. Obra referida nas revistas da especialidade, como uma das mais importantes, efectuada pelos portugueses durante o século XX. Este arquitecto trabalhou com Le Corbusier *, tal como Óscar Niemeyer, o que, no mundo inteiro não haverá mais de uma dúzia de arquitectos, que possam ostentar essa particularidade no seu currículo, e penso que foi um dos fundadores da faculdade de arquitectura de Luanda. Nome respeitado entre os arquitectos portugueses.Uma geração de arquitectos p...
A keen visitor to Luanda Township along the Kisumu-Busia highway would notice a unique phenomenon where residents mingle freely with mentally disturbed persons. Though an official nationwide urban census of mentally disturbed persons has not been undertaken, some people have concluded that Luanda town might be having the largest concentration of mentally disturbed persons. But as Patrick Amimo reports, mental specialist Dr. Lukoye Atwoli says the prevalence of mental illness across the country is almost uniform, though substance abuse could lead to mental illnesses.

Roque Santeiro is the largest open-air market in Angola and one of the largest on the African continent. If you know where to look, you can find whatever you want in Roque's sprawling stands. Women run most of the businesses here and in this video they speak up to protest against the government's decision to relocate the market outside the metropolitan area. The new market will have refrigerated warehouses and stylish restaurants but most of Roque's vendors will not be able go. One woman stated somberly: "Food, clothes, the money to send our children to school... it all comes from Roque. The whole family depends on our work here. I know Roque is going to close but in my heart it just doesn't feel right."

Angolan capital Luanda has been ranked as the second most expensive city in the world after it was leap frogged by Hong Kong in a survey that was published on Wednesday by consultancy firm Mercer.

Filth and nauseating smells have overwhelmed the city ever since the local authorities admitted that they'd run out of money to pay the garbage collectors. While yellow fever ravages the country - killing an estimated 250 people since December - residents now fear that these unsanitary conditions could further spread disease.

Few Nigerians are applauding the collapse of oil prices, which has hit the economy of Africa's top crude producer hard and hammered its currency, the naira. But for the currency hawkers hanging around outside Abuja's Sheraton hotel, business has seldom been so good as wealthy Nigerians turn to the black market - sometimes changing up to $200,000 at a time - to dodge increasingly onerous FX regulations. In other African crude producers such as Angola and South Sudan, the sharp drop in oil receipts has caused the official supply of dollars to dry up, paralyzing day-to-day commerce and leaving some travellers stranded cashless at airports. In South Sudan, one of the world's poorest countries, the formal central bank rate is 2.95 pounds to the dollar, but traders say the bank refused to sel...
