    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.

    Jambo! (Hello) No photos to post today as your not meant to take photos around here as people then know you own expensive stuff. But I will be getting photos at the orphanage soon and will post them asap! Firstly, the city... Wow. That place is crazy! Cars here have a mind of their own. The motorbikes think they own the roads and will do what ever they want when they want too. There are two traffic lights but the motorbikes just drive through on a red. ...

    Andy: Saturday is market day so we ventured to the chaotic streets of the main market in Arusha. Someone tried to sell me trousers that wouldn't have fit an anorexic 12 year old girl let alone my fat bum. I turned around to show him the rear that he attempted to clothe and he instantly apologised and walked off sheepishly. Then spotty Joe from my class showed up and took us to his mothers food shop where she ...
