Hi all, sounds like good news! Having an official list is progress definitely - good work!
I would like to note however that in most countries, the amount of monuments is higher - to make it really easy for any potential participant to find a monument nearby. I do understand however that this is different in Kenya - which is too bad but that is life. With 277 monuments it should be very doable to get a photo of every single one of them. The question that we discussed in Berlin seems most important to answer first: is the topic 'monuments' interesting enough for Kenyans to participate in such a photo contest? If you would still like to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments, I would like to urge you however to start as soon as possible with the organization. It is already June (well, almost) and that leaves only three months before the actual contest starts. If there's any way we can help you, please let me know.
