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.

Today I was finally able to meet up with the directors wife to ask what she needed in the orphanage, and the list kept coming! The place is really run down. Only recently did they have a kitchen built for them, and by kitchen I mean a building with a store room and wood fire stove. There is no oven or fridge and at the moment there are no shelves to keep the food from getting insects or water into them. That will be one thing I will ...
... play on a mixture of sand, rocks, barbed wire, and land mines. The girl who won the iphone was obviously delighted, although when I told her she'd need a SIM card she was pretty confused. I said she could just use it on WiFi though but she said she didn't know what WiFi was. Oh well, she can play with turning it on and off, and can still make an emergency call to 999. I was pretty sad to leave today actually. Mainly because I had to part with £100 ...
