Tanzanian visit 12 June 2013 - 28 June 2013

Emirates airline restricted the cabin luggage to 7Kilos! The 'Rufus Roo' jacket solved the problem - no restriction on the amount carried on the body! How silly can it get but it did the trick and I didn't mind looking like the Michelin X woman.
Lesley and Tim (fellow travellers) at Dubai airport
Leaving home 4pm on 12th arrived Dar es Salaam  13th,22 hours later! But we are still smiling - where are our other happy travellers Brian and Liz?
Lovely Rajabu who has been our driver   during our visits over the past 4 years. Not only that but has acted as translator and entered into all our activities - a real treasure.
14 June six hours after leaving Dar es Salaam we arrive still smiling in Mpwapwa. Brian,Lesley,Tim,Liz and Rajabu - what has happened to me - I must be taking the photo!
