Hey Willis,
Good to hear from you. Oh yes, we did attend Uongozi 2004 together, I am glad you are still pursuing tough things in Germany. I was gonna be there this Christmas but just changed my mind last week. I am doing great, currently at the University of Bradford, UK. When did you join Cologne? I have 2 very close friends also studying in Cologne, one is finishing and the other has just started!
I hope we can keep in touch, and thanks for looking me up!
