Hi Team,

That would be awesome. So the Plan Lodewijk and I talked is like this( Not
exactly , but my thoughts and suggestions added)

   1. We hire a travel van with a tour guide
   2. we get interested tourists and journalists to sign up to be part of
   the Guided Museums and Monuments tour of Nairobi
   3. We make them take photos with the tour guide explaining all
   the symbolism and significance of the Monuments. We could make a video of
   the same tour (am working with some other external folks to finance this)
   4. they agree either to submit or surrender some of their best or all
   photos of the monuments under CC-BY-SA licence or to us WMKE which wil get
   them into the Wiki Loves Monuments Competition to stand a chance to win
   some cool prizes that we need to work on, We could try get
   some external folks onboard too (Samsung, Safaricom, etc)
   5. kabooooom, WML done with all the Nairobi Monuments with their
   articles and a cool video too of all the monuments :-)

So Once again, am calling on anyone who is interested in this simple plan
to volunteer in some way to sign up here.


PS: WMZA have a very ambitious budget and plan for the WML, abt $60k USD :-)

Just to get jealous
