Photo Bomb

Am enjoying being home with my family. Am also reflecting heaps, on all I've done, seen and heard. I definitely have my Dad's blood running through my veins as I can't wait to go away again. Mind you, it won't happen anytime soon, but it's great to dream. What the airfare cost to go to Tanzania, would take Bunny and I to Dubai, so anything is possible, once I'm working.

I feel so blessed to have been able to be involved in this entire experience, from the fund raising events, to the work and learning experiences I've been a part of. I will always be grateful for the emotional and financial support and sacrifices that were made to enable me to travel to Tanzania.

As an added bonus, my dedication and ambition toward becoming an RN is heightened in light of the work I've done.





Where we spent most evenings, on the patio at our home in Moshi.



Our first full day in Tanzania we walked to Materuni Falls. It nearly killed me but was beautiful.

On the side of the road, a child plays while Dad cuts up a goat.


Mt. Kilimanjaro with the morning light.








Home in Moshi, the house, Hannna's office and below, is the sauna. (Hanna is Finnish), hence the sauna.

All the stages in growing coffee, from plant to cup.



Banana soup.



Lunch on the coffee tour, note the banana stew on the back of the plate.
