Flag of Tanzania  , Morogoro Region,
Monday, June 20, 2011

After arriving I went to an internet shop for some hours until Rogers's (couchsurf guy) brother picked me up. Also met with a group of 12 Americans who were doing a project in Morogoro. Since Rogers had other couchsurfers I went to a guest house and had a quiet night watching a movie.
Next day walked through the town looking around and searching for some info about hiking the Uluguru mountains. Found out that you always have to go to a place called Morning Sight (and old house on the mountain) and from there you can hike to 2 peaks: Lupanga and Bondwa, I took the last one. Together with Franky (Piki-Piki guy) I went up to Bondwa were a big radio tower was. Apparently the radio signals coming from Dar es Salaam are send to many places in the world from here. In the evening I met with Rogers and had some beers and food.

Since I've been around in Tanzania I really start to see the differences between the places I have been to. Also the people from the various tribes look different. The Chagga people from the Kilimanjaro region look way different than the Pogoro tribe in Morogoro. The people here are much bigger than I have seen somewhere else. Also some customs are different. Everywhere in Tanzania I always had chili sauce but here it's almost impossible to get haha.
