          Tumaini Cottages is a very pleasant and peaceful place to stay in Arusha. Lillian and Andy gave service beyond expectation. He was at the shuttle stop to meet us and give us a ride. The food is traditional Tanzanian and very good. I loved the view and beautiful landscaping.

Early sunrise start down the steep side of the crater, the volcano blew and created the caldera 3 million years ago. Now in is a wildlife haven. No giraffes or herds of elephants as there are few trees. Grazing ...

          The next day we woke up before sunset and drove to lake Natron (20 min away) to see the flamingoes! These are very shy creatures, they see you from afar and walk away from you immediatly which means you NEVER get to see them up close, except if you have binoculars or a large zoom. We watched the sunrise ...

There were baby ones too :) Dikdiks - tiniest species of antelope family. They were adorable! Flamingos - we couldn't get close to the lake because the lake has been drying up and the coast was getting farther and farther from the road. However we saw a large amount of pink in the lake and ...

Driving down a long undeveloped road past piles of dirt which are used to direct the rainwater in winter, around one bend and the next, all of which becomes a sea of mud in the rain, we eventually made it to Doreena’s home. There are no gardens here - just dust, dirt, and mud.

          We were shown the one room mud hut where Doreena and Glory has lived prior to ...

Inductions of labour feel like the norm to us western midwives, but when you do so many spontaneous births, you really see the effect that oxytocin has on the woman and the baby.
