Time-Oh-Graphy: The Concept of Time Keeping, Punctuality, & Time Management in Multiple Societies of the World

Based on a virtual tour of multiple societies the world over; Focus is on time keeping, punctuality and time management from multiple societies the world over; capped with an '11 day’ participatory & exploratory tour of Geneva by ‘Travel-Learn’ Participants

In this Travel Learn program, participants visit Ancient & Modern Approaches to Time Keeping and Time Management.

It is generally known and well evidenced that most Western countries practice commendable time keeping and management. On the contrary, some African countries are highly reputable at being 2-3 hours late, or even a 'no-show' without regrets. In the Kingdom of Swaziland, Southern Africa however, despite the general saying that 'There's no hurry in Swaziland', a line purportedly attributed to a former renowned King, punctuality and time management is far highly rated in comparison to most West African nations like Nigeria and Ghana. Travel Learn participants are interested in getting some answers. Is this about the general mentality of the people? If it is, why? Only a participatory examination can give the answers.

An interesting angle is added to this holiday compilation, a feature of different time keeping technologies of old, cutting across societies; from Pendulum to 'Gan-Gan'
