Sorry for the bulk update once again but computers and internet here is a rare commodity... the power has cut off once during this update, so I will try to make it short.
are in a small town / village called Loshuto in the middle of the
Usumbara mountains... this is the natural border between Tanzania and
Kenya (to the north). Yesterday we walked to the top of one of the small
mountains and we could see a view the stretched into the Massai flat
lands the natural grazing lands of the nomadic tribe
nice, and it made for a pleasant day out.
We have also taken a day trip to go and visit some local
forests and a waterfall here in Loshuto. This place is unlike most
other villages / towns that we have visited thus far in Tanzania in the sense that
they are in one of the most fertile lands in the country. Therefore
they are rather wealthy compared to most other places, which affords them
electricity and running water / pluming. Imagine, the luxury of lights!
Tomorrow we go back to Dar es Salaam (not by choice) but we
have decided to change our flights and go back to Sweden a week early.
Our budget is running low, and we are tired of dealing with this place
From Dar we will try to spend the last 6 / 7 days in Zanzibar exploring
the island before returning to Dar and flying back to Sweden.
Thats about all from here
