      Great stay at the African Tulip. Large, clean rooms with a big, warm shower. Extremely welcoming, nice, friendly staff. They were the highlight of our stay! Very helpful with whatever we needed. There was wi-fi in the rooms for, I think, $10usd for a 24 hour period. The food was okay, usually there was a buffet or you could order off the menu. I'd definitely recommend if you have a stay in Arusha.

      Planned highlight of the day (to see, not climb): Mount Kilimanjaro, elevation 19,341'

      Today we got picked up by our guide at 9:30am and headed out to the Shanga shops, where handicapped people make hand-made goods, such as glass blowing, scarves, jewelry and more. Three years ago it started it out hiring 4 people and they are now up to …

      Arusha is a town of approximately 400,000 people according to Wikitravel, or 1.2 million according to Wikipedia, so, you know, big... -ish. It's a popular stopover spot before beginning a safari, which is exactly what we're doing. There are apparently some great markets to do a little bargaining and buying of handmade area goods.

      ... Sammy left some bags full of baby items and we bid farewell to the village of Sanawari.

      After a final meal we forced ourselves to pack and sorted out more things to leave behind – our faithful hiking sandals included - these are now proudly worn by some homeless guys. It was an emotional departure at the airport as we had grown to love the area and had some great times with our hosts, along with the life-changing experiences. We sincerely hope we can return one day.

      We had an issue the other day. One of the girls was on her way to placement by herself on the DalaDala and the conductors got everyone else off early. But when she went to get off, they pushed her back and started to drive away. She tried to give him her phone and money but he said he didn't want it he wanted her. He tried to touch her and she kicked him in the balls and managed to get out even though the DalaDala was still moving. She ran all the way back to the ...

      ... by a few drinks at the house and a few games of pool at the local Tanzanite bar. Quite a nice day and night but now it's time to sleep zzzzz Andy: Aids! Apparently the funniest thing since Del Boy fell through the bar. We had to sit through so many performances that I thought my head was going to explode. And when it came to the speeches, which lasted over 2 hours despite saying 20 minutes in the program notes, I was considering setting myself ...
