Most strawberry pickers where I am from, are allowed to eat as much as they want. After a few days they don't eat strawberries anymore. Depending on where you are, you might also be piecework payed, making it a pretty bad business for the worker to eat more than they pick.

I have a follow up comment to this. I am civil engineering student, and has had some involvement with traffic engineering so far. I was told by an advisor on a project I did, that roundabouts are better, up to a certain traffic intensity. Basically once the roundabout gets gridlocked, it loses many of its advantages in terms of allowing traffic flow, and at that point it is more efficient to use a regular light intersection. But in many situations the roundabout will be better, and I think it is very true, that there is a lot of potential for them in the US. I am from Denmark, and we have been using roundabouts extensively for many years now, and for a long while the general wisdom was that roundabouts are always better, if there is space to build one. But over the last few years, most have started to see that the world is a bit more nuanced than that.

I hope what I wrote makes sense, I don't really know the English terminology.

Thanks for doing this. Otherwise I might not have known about this project for a long time. I wish you a lot of luck with the project. I have been quietly following the rise of African cycling during the last decade, where more and more young Africans, mainly from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda and of course South Africa, show that they are just as good and talented as many Europeans at the top U23 level, hopefully they will show it at the senior level soon too. At the WC in Copenhagen a few years ago, I met an Eritrea fan who had travelled all the way up there, one of the nicest people I've met.

I don't really have a good question. But I hope you will be successful, and you'll be able to change the lives of many Rwandans for the better with your work. For now, the only thing I can do is think about you the next time I'll be doing a charitable donation.
