I still hear the words of the chef in my ear: "sorry, we don't have the fish you ordered anymore but I will bring you another one.." -some hours later, I had food poison and won't go into details, but it was really awful. At the same time, like many times before, the toilet did not flush - again no details..
Besides that, you can't swim during low tide (sea is far off the coast), nor during hide tide (too big waves). At Kendwa rock, only 10min by car, go get a nice beach for the same price - go there!!!

... and applauded their new king of Volleyball. I'll stick to football though as I can't be the best at everything. Zoe: This morning there were a few people nursing hangovers but it was definitely a great day for relaxing on the beach and jumping in and out of the sea. We all discussed/swapped stories from last night which were quite fun, involving a lot of tacking in the sea and on the sand and we also collected our ...
... for the call to jump in. Much to Jacks dismay the call didn't come and instead they started the engine and moved to another spot. This all proved too much for him and he proceeded to throw his guts up over the side of the boat and was told straight after he had to jump in. This was another low point of the day. Thankfully though things picked up as in this spot we were swimming with the current which was much easier. We kept up the pace with the other guys and ...
Drove for an hour through interesting Muslim villages. Houses here seem fancier than the dung huts we saw in Kenya. Most huts here are made from cement blocks with metal roofs. women are covered head to toe but only a few completely cover their face. noticed brahma bulls were pulling their wagons rather than donkeys like in Kenya. Not as much traffic here and fewer motorcycles but lots of bicycles. Our resort, Hideaway of Nungwi, is ...
From the Serengeti we had our longest drive yet to Dar Es Salam: 14 hours. It was a 4am start on bumpy roads and as we got closer to the coast it got more and more humid. Sitting in Dar traffic we really felt the true intensity of the African heat. There is no air conditioning on our truck and when we're not moving, everything and everyone sweats. We were saved by the ocean when we finally arrived at our ...
The next two days were dramatically better as we began our acclimization climbs. A trek to Lava Towers at 15, 000 feet was one of our favorites. Last Friday (4th day) began with a nerve racking climb up a very steep Buranco Wall. One wrong step and you could fall 50 feet. It was amazing to us that the porters could navigate this trail balancing 35 LB LOADS ON THEIR HEADS.
