La Petit Traverse is the name of the place we have rooms during our stay
Homesickness is beginning to hit. It's not like I want to go back to Finland, but still. There's no thinking and pondering things when you're on the road, trying to catch this, worrying about that, if you still have your shit together, if you're being screwed by a taxi driver. There's just too much crap you've to focus on so you don't really have the luxury of time to wonder how your friends and family are doing. It's when you start relaxing a bit and get all that extra weight off your mind that these thoughts begin pouring in. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this place in itself. It's just missing a few people who I wish could be here also.
Also I'm worrying about our coming endevours. Mostly Tanzania, because we don't have a travel guide to that country. Not that it's a huge deal, but when you arrive to a dark, strange town in the middle of the night and touts surround you, offering to carry your bag and pulling on you to follow them, it's good to have a small list of hotels/guesthouses and a map to give you an idea where the hell you should be heading... Don't know, i guess we'll nose it out. It'll be fun, after the initial vitutus. Also in my mind is South Africa. The soccer finals are a few days after our departure from Joburg so it's probably going to be tough as shit to find places to sleep when we do get there..
Speaking of SA, we met this nice Canadian guy called Tymo here who's got tickets to difrent games and he asked us if we'd like to join him for one when we're in Johannesburg. That would be pretty freaking cool man. I guess we'll stay in touch through e-mail (he doesen't use a phone) to let him know when we're arriving and see what games are going at that time. I'm not really that in to soccer but hitting up the SA games would be really an experience. I hope this will happen. Thanks Tymo.
Ok well I think food is ready soon, gonna go grab a tummy full of fish and maybe knock back a couple of beers.
Also, I forgot to say last time. Happy birthday mom! Love and miss you <3
