Moro mpaka Dar

Shadow was good; relaxing. We woke up at 5 to catch the 6 A.M. bus out of Mpwapwa. On the way out, I watched the sun rising over the mountains and desert. Baobab trees gave way to acacia, and then I blinked and we were back in the lush greenery of Morogoro, only briefly before continuing on to Dar, where I am now.

It’s very strange to be back in Dar, its weather like D.C. in the summer but without most of the air conditioning. We’re staying at the same place we started, the same place we wound up at when we arrived in country. It seems like it’s been so long but no time at all. We even got the same lunch from the embassy that we got on our first day here. We apprciate the mediocre pizza and burgers a lot more now!

Site announcements tomorrow. Updates as events warrant.
