I have mentioned this place before but until you meet these people personally you just cannot get a feel for how great they are.
Check out this Malawian guy, I put him in the category of guys like Thomas Edison or Graham Bell.
Current forms of aid to Africa are creating dependency rather than permiting this kind of thing to take place. The ingenuity i have seen there coupled with skill goes beyond describing.
If you ever want to visit a beatufil place with great people visit Malawi. I think of kids in the western world that dont study given the opportunity free and with electricity and running water at home and then you see this and wonder. Once again thank goodness for the internet getting this kind of guy some exposure. Eating the elephant one bite at a time.
So i guess he is a woodworker of sorts if you look at his towers.
BTW in the markets in Malawi you buy your nails in units of 1 and no thats not 1 pound or kilo or dozen or box its one, by one.
