        The ocean here was fantastic! So warm! The food here is amazing! Not very African comparitively, the breakfast lunch and dinner are all so delicious! Andthe bar is also nice and not terrbily expensive. They also have reaonably priced horse back riding and snorkeling is nearby. Not a very busy place when I went but enough people to make a party. The huts are very modest little tent sturctures that are fine except foor all the bugs. We had a problem with huge spiders and milipedes, we weren't harmed but it was scary and hard to sleep. So as far as sleeping accomodations you get what you pay for because it is very cheap. but overall I had a great experience!

        It's hard to believe that I'm already nearing the end of my incredible volunteer experience. Over the course of the past 6 weeks I've had the pleasure of meeting, teaching, talking to and learning from some amazing students, teachers, volunteers, 4H staff, and many other interesting community members. I have visited 8 different schools and engaged in HIV/AIDS conversations with over 800 people. There have been some success, challenges, clarity (and confusion), and most importantly ...

        ... various endeavors that they (or more aptly their students) feel passionate about. And the rewards for all this? Well in Canada, they are pretty darn great. Aside from being fairly well supported and having access to resources, a good salary, benefits, small class sizes, etc, the real rewards are the smiles of a child who has finally understood something, completed a great work of art, or exceeded their own expectations. Here in Tanzania, they too are rewarded the majority of ...

        ... In this area we also
        saw the old Customs building from 1895. Once again most of it has
        fallen down but a small section is still in use as the Customs
        office. Even though we have travelled a lot I can still be saddened
        by the conditions of the way people live, yet the people arevery
        happy. We then returned to the vehicle and drove northwards and
        stopped for the night in the town of ...

        Andy: now at lake Malawi the fun could really start and we decided to take a boat out to the island you can see in the picture. Doesn't look that far but I think the tide kept pushing it further and further away as we struggled to get their before our arms fell off. Once there we decided to have a bit of a jump off the aptly named rock of despair. I thought it would be best to not even look at what we were jumping into and promptly jumped off. ...

        Andy: we had a smashing time on our last leg before reaching lake Malawi today. A log jumped off the road and smashed right through our front window smashing it to pieces and nearly inducing birth in the poor girl who was sitting below it. Luckily she had a rather large plait on the back of her head which absorbed most of the shattered glass, the rest will be found by the feet of the rest of the bus in the next few days. We stopped in a huge ...
