Dar visit, drone fun

While I was in East Africa, I made a quick side trip to Dar to visit with some compatriots also interested in drones for good — specifically Frederick Mbuya of UhuruNet, UhuruFly, UhuruLabs, and World Bank Tanzania (etc.) , as well as Ivan Gayton, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Tanzania, Missing Maps, formerly MSF UK (etc).

We chatted about tech, development, drones for good, and played a bit with some tech too.

Then we headed over to Tanzania Flying Labs for a bit of drone action. The guys made me ride the electric bicycle.

I was… chuffed.
