Cherie Blair, meet the coffee bike



Hey all. Cherie Blair, the wife of the British Prime Minister, visited the Maraba cooperative this morning. She was introduced to the various facilities that the cooperative has developed like the Telecenter/Internet center and the cupping laboratory. Along the way during the tour she was familiarized with the coffee bike. She asked some questions of it's capacities and it's purposes and I tried to keep it cool, with a forehead of sweat. She was excited about the program, but when I asked her if she wanted to ride on the back she responded with a smile, "no thanks."

Getting celebs to the project must really help with exposure. Did she find you or did you contact her? Did she bring any press (paparazzi)with her and if so are there going to be article?

Cheers,

Leave it to you to offer Cherie Blair a ride on the back of the coffee bike :). I would have been so impressed if she had said yes!

I love reading your blogs, such adventures!
