UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 4 Aug 2008 | Views [306]

So, there I was. all packed, all ready and quite eaqer to go home. I really have enjoyed my time here but I was also very ready for some normality, being able to walk in the city without being hassled and ready for a hot shower. I arrived well in time ... Read more >


final countdown

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 27 Jul 2008 | Views [324]

Right, here we are, just one more week to go. And I have very mixed feelings about this. On the one hand I am very much looking forward to my washing machine, my hot shower, decent public transport (you can imagine how tragic the local one must be ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 27 Jul 2008 | Views [349]

…which will you be doing anyway, considering you’re reading this online. Anyway, I’d advise you to sit down as this is a truly astonishing and, sadly, very nasty one: When you wonder through Moshi you see quite a few albinos. And to be fair, ... Read more >

Well, just in case you’re wondering if I’m actually working. Yes, of course I am. The trip to Tanga was totally necessary to recover from all the stress. Chasing after Tanzanian business men to come up with the goods is a precarious thing. You get easily ... Read more >

I'm a convert!

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 16 Jul 2008 | Views [547]

Honestly, I have always thought that bright white beaches, palm trees and turquoise water looked rather nice in brochures but that I could live quite happily without having experienced it myself. Sure it must be unbearably hot and sticky, boring and ... Read more >

Hi there - just a quick one: as Africa is sooo far away, and there is soooo much to see and the air tickets are sooo expensive, and I am rather enjoying this experience I thought, I might as well hang around for a bit longer. So, new coming home date ... Read more >

Right, apologies for the long silence.... I have been trying to find my feet, my project, my money, my favourite beer and also the sun. This might be a consolation to you - it's freezing here. No sun (seen it maybe three times), heavy clouds, quite a ... Read more >
