    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.

    ... of St Jude and had lunch of beans,ungali (made from corn), spinach and chilli with the students. We toured the school campus, amazed at the sheer magnitude of the place. It was hard to place where we remembered buildings from before and the fleet of buses was huge with a couple of 64 seaters to take kids home. We caught the school bus with a group of lower primary kids, leaving at 3.30 and getting back to school at 5.30 with no kids left sleeping ...

I'm sure that I will redo my back pack a couple more times. It may be several days before I'm able to publish again. I'll keep writing, but it may be one big regurgitation of blogs, so please be patient. Thank You all for you support and encouragement. so, ciao for ...

    ... there was screaming and we were told baboons were fighting. This place was literally in the middle of the bushland. There was poop everywhere on the floor and no fences to stop the animals from coming near us. Taylor was feeling sick this night so didn't come with us when we went to the dinner hall. For entrees we get wine and popcorn, then soup as well before dinner which was spag bol. We were all tired from the day and had to be up at 5.30 so once dinner was done we went to ...

    ... to suck your blood. We were deposited in our lodge where we stayed in a luxury safari tent which had its own shower, and even a spare bed for when Zoe gets annoyed of my snoring. Interested to see what our tour crew are gonna be like tomorrow. Hope one of them brings bacon this time. Zoe: packed everything this morning, just got everything in but unfortunately I don't think there is room for the bag I really wanna get from the markets. Then we hung around and said bye to ...

    The kids are amusing, they will swoop on you, literally appear from nowhere while you are casually sitting in the car - while your driver is elsewhere. This happened in the rural areas on the way to Serengeti. All of a sudden beaded, braided or wooden everything is thrust in your face.
    we met Joseph who had a lovely long winded story about selling his goods to assist in paying for his books and school ...
