... hammered it to Babati. I am not sure what TdA was thinking with the flagging through town but was not to impressed. Flagging usually means turn, but the flagging was where you couldn't turn. Luckily the lunch truck came past and I followed them up another freaking hill, down a hill and back up part way to a turn with 1 piece of flagging tape. Not to happy, but also running on empty and then some. 170km, 40degrees stage win for me. No plate as Andrea is on vacation and they are ...

The lions looked a little annoyed that most of the other animals had scarpered ...
... for me, not them. We might end up sponsoring a kid..maybe wonky eyes, she seems to have her eye on success. And the floor though... Zoe: today was our first day in the orphanage, which seems less of an orphanage and more like a "community school" for all the kids that can't afford school, they come to us and try to learn things and hopefully get sponsored to go to school. That seems like the ultimate aim of the East Africa Orphanage. We were in the "baby baby class" today and they ...
