Tazara Train

Wednesday, 26 Nov 2008 | Views [882]

The next morning we awake to amazing scenery passing us by outside our window. Scenic landscapes and refreshingly crisp air make us both forget the importance of today. Rich’s Birthday! What a way to turn 28! It's my birthday (26th Nov - a date for ... Read more >

Leaving Tanzania

Tuesday, 25 Nov 2008 | Views [547]

We leave Zanzibar by ferry at 7am and get back in Dar es Salam within a couple of hours. Now we have to go buy the tickets for our train ride to Zambia. This is a 42 hour sleeper train ride from Dar to a place called Kapiri Mposhi (somewhere in central ... Read more >

Zanzibar - Jambiani Beach & Dolphins!

Sunday, 23 Nov 2008 | Views [1298]

The main purpose of visiting the east coast of Zanzibar is to see the dolphins. There's a place called Kizimkazi where you're basically guaranteed to find them, and you can go swimming with them. Excellent. And with Alicia's love of dolphins, this is ... Read more >

Zanzibar (the spice island) - Stone Town

Friday, 14 Nov 2008 | Views [1184]

Dar es Salam

Wednesday, 12 Nov 2008 | Views [332]

Now that we have a taste for African buses, there is no other option of how we get to Tanzania. 10 hours? No problem. After a couple of hours of bouncing over potholes at 80 miles per hour, Alicia is reconsidering this option. I am asleep, dreaming ... Read more >
