    On the road again

    A travel blog entry by victoriacronk on Oct 09, 2014


    We left Dar Es Salaam at around 6 to try and avoid some of the heavy morning traffic. However, we still ended up at a standstill a lot of times and probably didn't get out of town for a good few ours. We stopped for lunch at a town which had quite a few muzungu's around due to lots of volunteering. We picked up a cooked pizza from a super market and ate it on the truck as it was just a quick stop.

We sampled everything from fresh fruit to herbal teas and even the plant they use for lipstick! We ended it with a gorgeous homemade seafood curry ...

    ... a fish market. It is supposed to be quite famous. We have to admit that it was a great experience. The place itself is extremely dirty and smelly (not necessarily because of fish, itīs more combination of fish, **** and garbage). However, being in the middle of the entire fishing, cleaning, decision-making and even cooking process was something indescribable. We stayed there for a while and just ...

    ... seat - there aren't many in the check in area at Dar es Salaam, in fact there's not much at all in this part of the airport, then settled down for a little rest before our precision air flight to Kilimanjaro. There's a currency exchange booth close to where we're sitting, so we go over to see if we can get some Tanzanian shillings, but the lady working in the booth is fast asleep! Fortunately precision ...
