First Impressions: Tanzania

Friday, June 2, 2006 | Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (map)

The new family: Charlie, Susan, Esta, me and Joyce
I've arrived! At 10:00 PM local time last night I and seven others of the Georgetown trip arrived from Amsterdam, changed some money, and were taken to our host families. Thanks to my late sign-up for this program, for the time being I'm staying with one of the local program directors, a Tanzanian named Susan Wagner.

As soon as we stepped out of the plane it was clear that despite the mild temperatures in Dar es Salaam at this time of year, the humidity is going to make things difficult. I feel like I'm swimming. But with a good ocean breeze, our drive (on the left side of the road) from the airport was quite pleasant—it feels good to be back in Africa.

Hi Andrew
Your mom and sister are over here for dinner, and we thought that we would say hello.
It rained during our dinner.
Maggie ate whipped cream out of the can, she knew you would be proud.
Your mommy saw the Da Vinci Code...twice.
Have fun in Africa!
