Thank you a lot George for your kind words

Pleased to meet you Gunter, You must look back on this time with mixed feelings..One of achievement and the other of sadness..Africa is a very beautiful and diverse country, its people suffer greatly through lack of investment, poor infrastructure, and the majority seem to live in poverty, in poor health, in squalid conditions..
The majority living in the rural areas still travel many miles each day to fetch clean water.
That was my experience when I visited Kenya and Namibia a few years ago. Only the mega-rich enjoy a lifestyle similar to the Europeans!
Hello Jim, thank you for your nice words.
You talk for me about the heart.
With my wife we have over 3 years (1979-1982)in Mozambique lived and worked (civil engineer) and experienced a lot of sorrow and misery.
The political situation was unstable. We were exposed to great dangers
Much greetings and once again all best in the new year Günter
African State instability! that is so true of most African countries Gunter, you were lucky to get out unharmed..
Many of them are ruled by corrupt dictators whose politics are those of the gutter..Crime, drugs, piracy, rape, sadistic mutilation and corruption is prevalent at every level..
Factor in the growing threat of Moslem extremists who are intent on destabilising the whole continent of Africa and the future is decidedly bleak.
Then consider the proximity of Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Israel, Syria and the prospect for peace in that part of the world seems to be very far away!
I am sad to make such a pessimistic assessment about the true state of the world in which we live..Despite my sincere wishes for hope and peace in the coming years, I doubt if I will see that in my life-time (I'm 72)
Hello, Jim are almost our views these are.
I (79) was mainly active in developing countries on construction sites 18 years.
Fault for the misery and poverty is the avarice, the capitalism.
A dangerous money addiction is an addiction, one, the capitalism corrupts people, exterminates mankind, nature, environment.
By double moral standards of the rich countries poverty and misery are supported by supply of arms, support of disputes, corrupt governments, in poor countries.
An end cannot be foreseen.
My kind regards Günter
