Topic: Bee keepers of Rwanda

This is only my second attempt soundslides. I met with three bee keepers in a Millenium Devlopment Village, 35km south of the Rwandan capital Kigali. It's short. I'm not a pro-snapper, but would appreciate any feedback, good, bad or indifferent. Cheers

It was short. Nice though. Could you have gotten some CUs of the honey making process? Loved the details about how the money is used and how the combs are reused. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Bee keepers of Rwanda

Thanks. yes, it is short. And, in all honesty, I didn't really think about doing a soundslides for this because I just had a few images to work with. Good point about the honey making (or gathering) process, but it only happens every 3 months and this was my first meeting with these bee keepers.

Every time I've used soundslides I've been inspired to think of other stories in Rwanda that I can use the tool for. I'm getting an excellent audio recorder soon and that will hopefully add another dimension to it.

In the meantime, here's a longer one I did about football in rural Rwanda a little bit before the World Cup 2010
