... we dedicated ourselves to writing and reading. Gonzalo went jogging for a while.

At about 13.00 we were hungry again so we decided to walk to the village of Paje and try to look for a local place where we could have something simple and cheap. We ended up in the place named “African BBQ”. They offered us rice, beans and spinach for TZS 3,000 and one soda for TZS 600. The food was super boring but what concerns the price it was exactly what we were aiming ...
