Marlies sends an email and pictures of a water buoy that has been converted into a water tank for drinking. Ingenious uses of materials that might seem odd to Westerners at first glance are common place in Africa. The picture was taken in Lamu, a small island off the coast of Kenya.
“I recently had a chance of spending some time in Lamu where i came across an interesting observation which made me think of AfriGadget. Here is a picture of a water suspender made out of a buoy – very neat idea!”

hey, we’ve seen this one too in lamu!
I’ve seen this African water suspender made out of a buoy when I had a travel with my boss in timeshare exit solution, Inc. in Africa last year. It is indeed very amazing.
