Tanzania, We Love You

This has been an amazing trip for us. We've met incredible people and the kids have had the experience of a lifetime. I hope they remember this for the rest of their lives. How could they not, right?

Two years ago I could not have imagined a trip like this would be possible. When a friend asked me what a dream-come-true would look like for me, I had to say it had something to do with taking my children to faraway lands for experiences that would change them forever. Since that time, my life has realigned to make this dream and many more possible. All because one friend asked.

What are you dreaming for for your kids?

You're welcome back to Tanzania. Next time you might find some friends from a Tanzanian forum (JamiiForums.com) who can give you more info over our country.

Karibu sana :)

I too ws in Tanzania recently. I had come back to revisit Tanznaia. i had been a Peace Corps volunteer forty-two years ago. What i saw dismayed me. It was as if I had never left. Same squalor,people living- no surviving. No sanitation, water searched for , roads in disrepair. Where had all the money gone? Yes there were cell phones , why not solar? I am angry. These are lovely people who should be angry at their government , at the NGOs who pimp poverty. Where is the " revolution of rising expectations" that we peace corps volunteers were to be a part of?
I am reminded of what President obama said in comparing Kenya and South Korea's GDP at the time of independence. Why?
