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.

    Hello Steve!

    Better put in my order before you leave Kenya!! Just kidding. I can’t imagine you taking time or effort to send something but I would be so TICKLED to get something from Africa! A piece of cloth would be fantastic as would anything you mentioned. Make it as easy on yourself as you can. If there is anything I could do for you on this end, please let me know. Enjoy Kenya! Take care, judy

    I’ll pick you up one of the colorful wraps that all the women wear. They are pretty nice. I am still trying to find some good masks, so when I have those I will be sending a bulk package home and then it can be shipped to you.

    hey Stevenrnrjust wondering if u hav ne idea about train service from Brundi to dar-e-salam.

    No train service from Burundi. You would have to do as I did and head down to Kigoma and then take the trains from there. You could also go to (I forget the name, but the main city at the southern point of Lake Victoria.) From there you can catch a train down to Tabora and then over to the capital, Dodoma. From there they had discontinued the train to Dar so you have to take a bus, which is faster anyways.

    Sorry about the late response.
