... a guest house for the night. I was told that any accommodation would be "very local". Now from day one I had decided that any road travel of a night was not a good idea, considering how bloody scary the overtaking moves they perform during the day are. So it was with some amazing clarity that I accepted the idea of traveling on the back of a motor bike with my new found interpreter to the next village. So I crossed the rubicon ...

Very participative and I think they are enjoying themselves. The Tanzanian members are quite quiet so we are going to try to change that! We do our day on Thursday and we are going to get them talking. Piavi has now invited us to Finland in 2015.... Oh boy... See a trend ...
