      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.

      On a mange le petit déjeuner à l'hôtel African Tulip. C'était un hôtel excellent. Hier le chef nous a préparé une spécial souper qui n'est pas sur le menu. Il fait tout les choses de Inde. C'était incroyable! La première arrêt c'est le muse l'histoire naturelle. Ici une hippopotame a presque …

      Day 71: put your boobs away

      A travel blog entry by tautological on Oct 13, 2014

      ... So weird to be sitting there sweating balls watching that on tv in October. The rest of our gang then turned up and we had a few more drinks and then went for dinner at the local food market by the sea which was cool. I jumped behind the stall and made Andy a Zanzibar pizza, haha not sure how good it was. The best bit was then sitting down chatting and watching the market. There were a few crazies around who we're entertaining to watch. One guy came over to ...

      Day 44: kissing another girl

      Andy: I kissed another girl today, with tongues. She had a beautiful long neck and liked to dress in animal print. Zoe didn't mind when I told her, she went in for a snog with her too! Turns out my new girl gets around a bit though, and only wanted me for my food. We went to see some baby elephants as well, all of which were orphans. We got to touch one of the elephants heads, it was alright. I'm not a massive fan of elephants, they're just ...
