Goodbye Tanzania.

$1000US to climb Kilimanjaro.

$120-150US per day to visit Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti.

Touts on every corner wanting to sell the above.

I opted for plan D. A Banana Split at McDooleys and I left. Felt kind of bad at the moment as the Ngorongoro Crater is thought of as the 8th wonder of the world. Who can pass up the Serengeti? Well, sometimes you just gotta say no. The Banana split helped to soothe things over.

So now I am in Nairobi, Kenya. Very nice capital city an is as modern as anything in the states. It gets a bad rap as a crime spree city, (Nairobbery). For me, I see food on every street, electricity, water on demand, sodas for $.30, beautiful women wearing revealing clothing, and I even got to use my tent for the first time in three months. Being the closest thing I have to a home, my first nap felt like I had fell into a coma.

In Kenya, they have the Masai Mara (Serengeti.) The price is a bit more manageable so I am going to possibly take a trip out there. Gotta be able to say that I peed on the Serengeti.

Thats about it. The fast lane on the Gringo trail, make that the Mazungo trail.

With my tent in hand, I took a Ferry across the Zanzibar Channel (I don't know if thats the actual name), to the island of Zanzibar. It was a slightly rough two hour, forty dollar (ouch) ride on a ... [Continue reading this entry]

Exotic normalcy.

Thursday, March 1st, 2007
Before I go on, it must be said that for me, my two weeks in Dar es Salaam turned out to be very enriching. Not in the exotic sense, like being in a foreign land, but for me, a ... [Continue reading this entry]

Package wars are over.

Monday, February 19th, 2007
I got my tent today. Two weeks waiting in the sweltering heat of Dar es Salaam. That rounds out all my loose ends. My laptop arrived a few days ago, something that has had me worried for ... [Continue reading this entry]
