Final Day of Tanzanian R&R...

A travel blog entry by lucindafagan


Gary and I woke up to a beautiful day so again decided to get in some exercise on the beach.

Every morning there is always heaps of locals that wade out through the shallows to hunt and gather (from what I can figure out) absolutely everything they can find. So this morning as we were down on the sand doing pushups some local women thought it was the funniest sight they had ever seen. They rushed over and literally ...

Another Day, Another Beachside Haven

A travel blog entry by lucindafagan

It's quite shallow for a long distance so I wore ...

Hospitalized in Mtwara

A travel blog entry by darch101


Hi everyone, Quite a frightening experience and I am glad it is behind me. I woke up about 3AM on Sunday with itching on my hands and discovered hives on my hands only. I took 2 Benedryl, applied hydrocortizone cream and went back to sleep. When I awoke the hives had spread to my arms and torso, but the worst was that I was very dizzy. I could only stand for several minutes without feeling faint. Abbott provides contact to ...
