Today is 17 months on the road. Find myself in a treehouse on the East coast of Tanzania. The Indian ocean is about 500m away and slept under a mosquito net under a tarp built from an ok’d hot air balloon that used to be used for safari.
Ditched tent yesterday and it poured all night, first time since arriving, coincidence!? This is a place I never knew existed, let alone imagined visiting. Been here 2wks and in Africa over 2 months.
Concluded a trip to Tanga is key, get the gsm modem working for desktop fun or get a move on perhaps, blogging is not the same on a phone, slow, tedious, typos.
Really us beautiful around here, most of the people living here probably lived very similarly for quite some time. The roads are worst I’ve seen in some of the more rural areas. The vehicles are classic with much character, in fact most have no starter motor.
Realized how most of the west seriously over eats, to our own detriment, naturally. Seriously not much to do here in the rain, snorkeling perhaps, bay may be calm.
Checked weather last night, Tanga which is closest city was 50 degrees warmer tha Ottawa, wow. Don’t miss that crap at all and 9 / 10 honest Canadians will agree, it sucks, especially if you are not ms for a winter sport.
In closing, if exploring is something you really want, wait until you can REALLY go. A few months go by as fast as eating breakfast in a typical day. Had no clue how long trip would last, must say it’s just starting to take on a life of itself, next year should be interesting.
Typing on phone feels like talking monotone.
