Our time in Tanzania is coming to an end. It is going to be hard to say goodbye to this place and all of the amazing people we have met, especially Kadeghe. L Our flight doesn’t leave until late tonight so the majority of the day we are spending relaxing and enjoying our time in Dar es Salaam. We ate lunch with a couple Wartburg alums and made sure to have some of our favorites before leaving such as milkshakes, kahawa (coffee), and you cannot forget chapatti and ndizis (bananas) 🙂
We have all learned so much on this trip about Tanzania and the Maasai culture. It is going to be hard to go back after an experience like this. Here is a quick summary of everything we did; stayed at Catholic Guest House, learned Swahili, Sekumo University Tour, Irente Biodiversity, Irente Children’s Home, Lushoto market, Church Service, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Waterfall, Lutheran Junior Seminary (LJS), Morogoro market, Kadeghe’s Maasai village, three safaris, Juma Hills, stayed at Lutheran Guest House in Dar es Saalam, Ferry to Zanzibar, spice tour, slave market, snorkeling, and eating delicious food. We loved it all.
The plane rides back to America were rather interesting to say the least, but between sleeping and watching movies we survived. We are all very happy to be back home with our friends and family. I would like to thank everyone who has been following our blog, and I apologize for the lack of internet connection that didn’t allow us to update while we were there. We all had such an amazing time in Tanzania and we would love to tell you about our experiences and show you our thousands of photos.
Asante Sana (Thank You Again) to everyone that gave donations, those receiving them were very thankful.
