Fun at the First Martian Friday

Quick Post

At the beginning of this year, us guys agreed that we needed to connect more with the cool peeps that follow our work. Although many people openly appreciate and are inspired by the exciting projects we get to work on, we felt that we needed to actually meet them in the flesh. After all, “African skin” is one half of our mantra.

Thing is, social media is cool. But social media isn’t social enough.

So if by any chance you’d taken a look at our Internal Projects page, or if you’re a fan on Facebook, you probably knew about today’s event. Well, I’m here to report that all three of us Martians are very happy with how it went down!

Java was the venue. Koinange street. Oh yea, we totally colonised the couch area! We weren’t expecting a large number though, so we’re glad that we were able to have meaningful conversations with those who came. It was quite refreshing, I must say.

So here are a few photos from the afternoon.

Looking forward to the next one on 4th July, God willing.

Enjoyed the conversation with Anthony from Duke University.
