Pictures from Riverside camp

Welcome to my home (for the duration of language school)!

Travelling by bus from Dar es Salaam to Iringa - an 8 hour jouney. This is one of the stopping places, a brief chance to 'chimba dawa' (translated = 'dig roots', ie. go to the loo) and get a bit to eat.

I've arrived in Tanzania! Right now I am in Dar Es Salaam, where it still feels pretty hot despite the fact the rains have cooled things down. Tomorrow we head off to 'Riverside Camp' for Language School (if you're looking on a map - this is at Iringa). I'm told it is cool there and beautiful, so I look forward to beginning my Swahili classes.
I'll post a couple of photos of the area to give you a few impressions of the place!
