At Tiwi Beach this day....it was beautiful! The train to Mombosa was canceled due to an accident, so we took an overnight bus. It was disgusting. First of all it was incredibly hot and no one would open the windows. The guy next to me was the worst smelling person I've ever encountered in my entire life. Kait was sitting on the other side me of, and had a large sweaty man sitting next to/on top of her. He was wearing a full suit and sweating so much on her that she had to move because the entire left side of her body was soaking wet. Disgusting. I don't know why the guy next to me wouldn't open his window. He was wearing a winter coat and acted like he was cold, but I know he wasn't because I could smell his B.O.  If you're sweating, you're not cold unless you have the flu or something!
Anyway, we got to Mombosa and hopped over to Tiwi Beach. We were basically the only ones on the beach.  When the tide went out  we were walking up to the water's edge and realized we were actually walking on reef. It was really cool because we saw all these sea creatures up close that we've never seen before.

Sorry you had such a smelly trip to the beach. That happens sometimes! Sounds like a wonderful beach and the pictures are beautiful. It is a lovely Sunday here but is supposed to storm this afternoon. Of course that may not happen as it so often misses us here in our community. Love you, Grammy and Gramps

Back to Arusha
I am glad you made it back to Arusha, but sorry about all of the bus trips. I guess you couldn't move from the smelly and sweaty men you enountered on the way to the beach. The beachs looks really clean and are beautiful. I don't remember right now where the pictures of the monkey were taken, but how long would you say that tail was? It looked a lot longer than the monkey itself. I love you and look forward to hearing more of your adventures. Love mom
