We have been in Dar es Salaam for a week now. We visited the United States Embassy in Tanzania as well as the National museum and Karioko Market! We have had pizza hut and subway that reminded us of home. We also have been having class last week and all this week. As well as visited some German ruins from the colonial period. This Saturday 11/18 we will be traveling to Zanzibar!
WOW! Sorry for the delay in posting. We have been very busy bees these past couple of weeks! We have started classes and are staying at the School of St.Jude. We have been working with our St.Jude partners on our independent study projects. We have had many adventures like visiting Moshi, going to a movie theatre in Arusha to see IT, and just exploring Arusha. We just came back from our mid semester break which was spent in the coastal city of Tanga. We visited some German ruins and learned more about the legacy of colonialism in Tanzania. We also spent some relaxing time on the beach and interacting with the locals. Now, we are back at it with classes full swing! This weekend we will be visiting a Maasai village and spending the night there. And we will be going to Dar es Salaam in the beginning of November!! Stay tuned !
We have arrived in Arusha, Tanzania. It is 9:53 am here. We will be staying at the Danish Center for a week. Today will consist of resting and going into town!
The next group of OWU students are busy preparing for their semester in Tanzania! We have about 6 more weeks until we take off!
