Went ‘rural’ yesterday – travelling from Moshi town to Mbahe village, near Marangu, on the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro. Started off at the Kilimanjaro base camp, full of wazungu (white folk) getting ready to climb the mountain. Then walked around a really lush village with lots of water coming off the mountain,
and happy smiley kids who seemed really pleased to see me. As we walked around the kids were taking turns to hold my hands which was really sweet.
