It all started with a casual conversation Fionn and I had back in winter 2011 - more and more Chinese business people are stepping into East Africa, they are running the convenient shops around the corner, factories, and even construction companies.
This lead to our initial goal of Afrinese - to see how local African and Chinese communities are integrating (or not) with each other. Our two-month roadtrip on the East Coast of Africa is not only an eye-opening adventure, but also a journey for self-discovery and growth.
We wouldn't be able to say thank you enough to our dear family, friends, and those who have helped us in every and any way. Our acknowledgement and many special thanks go to:
