    ... is interested in the same things and that's ok too. Hopefully everyone makes it home without any flight delays/cancellations. I'm looking forward to a comfy bed, clean clothes and a hot shower with proper toiletries! Going back to reality isn't going to be easy though!

    White sand, turquoise water and lots of character

    A travel blog entry by lottieuganda on Jul 02, 2014

    After a two day drive from Arusha to Dar es Salaam and one night at a lovely beach camp on Dar es Salaam's coast, it was time for my final trip and one of the trips I'd been looking forward to most - Zanzibar!

We had a wonderful day in the magic streets of historical town, including a sobering stop at the old Slave market stables. This is where they kept the slaves for a couple days before they were auctioned off. It was horrible to see the old chambers where so many slaves were kept and held in horrible conditions. The place is haunting and truly a must see for any visitors, as it ...

    ... of it later. Am I right?.. So In my school there was nursery (kindergarten) kids and primary school. All of them have 5 classes a day 50 minutes each and between classes they don't have breaks. Well they have one after 3 periods when they can go play outside.. In the field where only dust, rocks and nails exists. Kindergarten kids gets tea and sometimes some kind of doughnut. Older ones nothing. They all can drink water (and they do it) outside from the tap or rain ...
