          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.

          ... up at 2;30 sitting on my stool outside my tent, I did see the jackals raiding the bins, but that was about it, I couldn’t see any lions, hyenas comi8ng into a campsite with so many people in it, bins are easier than a tent,, either way, I had my tent down and my kit waiting to go on the truck, I had even wandered over to the kitchen and had a coffee

          ... or orphanages, which is the reality for so many. We were invited into Munira’s home to witness first-hand the kind of conditions that people lucky enough to have a roof over their heads are living in. This was adjacent the school; another simple room with mud walls and a tin roof and a few belongings. Despite the obvious hardships, everyone had nothing but big grins for us.

          Following this we had a cold drink in a nearby local cafe. We felt pleasantly at ease there, ...

          Andy: best day ever to lose my voice and hearing in my right ear as we welcomed 10 more peeps on to our love bus. 'Hi, I'm Sean, what's your name?' '....'. I tried to say my name but since it's not a high pitch adolescent squeak followed by the sound of tree bark being rubbed against sandpaper no one could get it. I took to miming my name, occupation, list of likes and dislikes and entire school history. To be honest they only asked my name but I got a bit carried away. I ...

That includes the concrete floor, the walls rendered, a door and window, plus 10 desks and blackboards. I will hopefully be able to paint the classroom and kitchen as well. It would be nice to get my hands dirty...more then they already are from all the dirt! There is an office that still needs to be completed including a table, chair ...

          ... around the Youth Hostel in Nairobi, dubiously trying the food and lounging on the roof. The day after that, we took a three hour drive to Lake Nakuru - passing the Great Rift Valley on the way - to do an AMAZING safari. Waterbuffallo, flamingos, pelicans, vultures, zebra, warthogs, baboons and best of all, white and black rhinos. Completely worth the money. Spent the night in Nakuru, in a 'budget hotel' which was luxury compared to the hostel. Three hour drive ...
