Are you familiar w/ ethnobeeology.org? Found on Facebook. Some pretty nice photos and links found there.
I bet that sounded critical when you read it. It's not meant to. You have a good idea. And I have no idea what things are like in Tanzania. So, just asking because I am curious and ignorant.
I saw some minismokers at Brushy Mountains vendor display last week. Really small, really work, meant for decoration, not really built for use. Maybe getting a company to build them inexpensively and include them w/ the hives Heifer Project gets to people(?).
