Africa: Rafiki

Back in August, when I was wondering what this experience was going to be like, I wondered what kinds of friends I would make

I had an idea, but didn’t think I would become so close to a group of people in three weeks’ time.  Three years in Samoa is one thing, but three weeks in Tanzania is another.  I was pleasantly surprised by some of these women (and a few local friends) and have grown to love them very much.  Even when it’s a rough day, someone’s ready with a smile or a hug or a stupid inside joke (of which there are many) that will make me laugh.

So, to my Hakuna Penda/Internet Cafe crew, you know who you are.  Thank you and Asante Sana for everything.  You helped make this trip everything it was and I look forward to seeing you all back in TZ or somewhere in the states (or NZ!!).
