Auf Wiedersehen

Song farewell to Signe Nelgen When two agricultural economists bid farewell to another agricultural economist colleague, they don't write mathematical equations, they sing!
At least, that's what my colleague Nils Teufel and I did to say goodbye to our fellow colleague Signe Nelgen who left Nairobi a few weeks ago to relocate in Washington DC. We surprised her with a special farewell song I adapted from Mozart's Magic Flute and gave her husband and her some African animal mini-totems to protect them along the way.

All present contributed food and portable chairs; another colleague had even brought their BBQ! It was a great farewell party.
