Blogging Oluniyi David Ajao; Meet local bloggers when travelling

Someone chose that Oluniyi David Ajao will be the subject of her blog post this morning. Karen Lotter did. She is a journalist and writer based in Durban, South Africa and writes for a Canadian site, Africa Suite @Suite 101. According to her email to me, she came by my blog through South African blog aggregator – Amatomu. This is quite similar to what I did about Israel Mlambo, a South African blogger in Introducing: Culturalist, Isreal Mlambo! (May 2007)

Back to Karen. The title of the post where she blogs about my humble self is Meet Oluniyi David Ajao and the very first paragraph reads:

To get the most our of a visit to Africa – safari or vacation or business trip – one needs to become acquainted with the locals. What better way than through the bloggers?

That is indeed true. I have had several people contact me from several parts of the world, asking specific questions about Ghana, Nigeria and the rest of Africa, with subjects varying from my person, to mobile phones, politics and other things. It is true that bloggers can offer a fresh perspective to the real situation in travel destinations. An astute traveller will not always swallow what the government tourism brochures say, but would ask questions from locals as well.

Karen’s concluding paragraph says it all:

To get to know the ordinary people and to learn about their ways and their countries will guarantee you an unforgettable African vacation experience.

You can read her full post about moi. Thanks Karen, for your kind words.
