Dala Dala


The day began with another class. We had our first African Medical Systems Class at 11:00 this morning. Our class was shorter today but we learned a lot of information about Functionalist Perspective, Symbolic Interactionalism, Conflict Perspectives and how they impact health systems in Tanzania. The class was very informative and enjoyable. After class a few of us went to the market. We walked an hour and a half to get there and rode the Dala Dala back. A Dala Dala is a small 12 passenger van that rides from the city to the suburbs and surrounding villages. It usually cost less than a dollar to ride and they fit over 20 people in it. It was exciting and cramped.
