    ... went down to have breakfast at our hotel and Heather came prepared to pass the test of our waitress on her Swahili phrases she taught us from the day prior. Heather answered correctly and then we proceeded with breakfast and preparing for our day trip. Today it was our intent of going out to Mt. Kilimanjaro and seeing it from the road, taking photographs, etc because our flights in and out of Africa usually occur in ...

Unfortunately all the campsites around Naabi are full and they want to send ...

Five misdirections by locals later we agreed on something similar to a backpackers with our room resembling a fancy cell.. We had one bed, a small writing table and a phone from the 60s! Plus a toilet so high, my feet couldn't reach the ground. We wandered across the road to a 'pub' where we had a four o'clock lunch before walking through the town.

The small congregation of twenty people had their hands in the air, and when the Yamaha keyboard kept cutting out, then continued anyways, keeping the beat with their feet, and hands. Dancing up and down the aisle, and praising us for what we were doing. It was a unique experience, and I am more than happy to have been there. I found myself fighting back the tears, and ...
