      ... There are no utensils and it's dark so I just gnawed the mess out of the barbecue which is a bunch of pieces of animal hacked up, bones and all. Not how we are used to having barbecue---but when you're hungry, you're hungry and you just rip the meat and gristle off the bone with your teeth. After the soccer game was over, we went to a bar with music. At midnight marks Tanzania's revolution day so there were fireworks ...

We were even given samples of each spice which we placed in banana leaf cones they made for us. Later in the tour we watched as ...

      ... up being really really cool! We saw cinnamon, coffee, lemongrass, and a ton of other spices I can't remember. The guide had us smell the plant and then guess the spice.
