    Anyone traveling? Figured I`d make an official thread so people can put their questions and tips here, if not then I guess this can fade to oblivion.

    I have two trips lined up. Will go more into detail if this thread catches steam.

    Did you have to do the Yellow Fever Shots? How long do they last, and did how much did it cost? Disregard if you are not from the States and actually living in France.

    I'm not from the US and living in France, but for some countries you have to get them regardless, for CAR I need one for example. I did a couple years back when I went to Senegal (wasn't compulsory there tho), I think it lasts 10 years. Don't remember how much it cost tho, not that much.

    Yeah, it's a gift and a curse. On one hand, everybody here is African. There isn't the idolization of europeans you see in other African countries. On the other hand, the lack of colonialism has the country way behind as far as development. However, you get used to living with less. Power may go out from time to time, the network is on and off, but man, there is something so calming and serene about being amongst your own. Hard to describe.


    Morocco is gorgeous. I spent some time in Marrakesh last year for the United Nations Climate Change Conference

    I'm an attorney by trade but currently doing strategy consulting in emerging markets. Basically helping outside investors jump into African companies. For the investors, I have to create proper business entities to invest and get their dividends out, and for the company, I work with a team that helps improve the inefficiencies within the company.


    My goal is to one day start or be part of a fund ran by African Americans investing in Africa and gettting people to come back and transfer skills/knowledge to the people here.

    You do this on your own or for a company? Def will want to make some things shake with you in the near future.

    I used to do it for a company, then I was able to get a couple contracts on my own so I started my own shop with some friends

    What's stopping you? In my case it's not difficult at all to head to the islands but I find that if you really want to go somewhere you can make it happened

    Return home breh :salute:
    How did you get from practicing law to consulting in Ethiopia:lupe:

    I'm heading to law school so what you're talking about is very intriguing to me:lupe:
