    Another beach day

    September 24 in Tanzania

    Nice stroll along the beach, went down to kenwa and the back all the way to the lighthouse.
    Saw some starfish again - the beach looked different near the lighthouse with all the fishing boats in.

    Cheetahs rock

    September 23 in Tanzania

    I never thought it would be like it is, the owners have the utmost respect for their animals and this shows in the trust that the animals have with them.
    To be able to enter a cage with bushbabies, a white lion, monkeys and a pair of cheetahs was astounding. To also hand feed a male white lion and a hyena was all beyond what I expected.

    A day on the beach and school visit

    September 22 in Tanzania

    Up early for a quick dip then at breakfast o e of the cooks said she would take me to see the headmaster at the local school so I could unload the things I had brought for them.
    What an eye opener... 2500 pupils and 8 teachers. They have to teach the classes in shifts one group Mornings and the next in the afternoon. Very few chairs or desks with the kids sitting on the floor and only one computer in the whole school and that's in the office.
    Yet despite this the children are taught 3 languages English Arabic and swahili as well as basic maths in the secondary they are also taught civils which is a mixture of politics and general studies.

    Stonetown

    September 21 in Tanzania

    Well a trip to stonetown isn't complete without a visit to the old town - its narrow streets are a cross between the alleyways of naples and any Arab souk!
    Lots of hustle and bustle scooters attempting to run down any and everyone.
    Apart from the slave market museum there are few sights worth seeing, livingstones House, fantastic wooden doors although many are reproductions it's possible to find some originals. There's an old Fort and not forgetting Freddy Mercury's birthplace!Read more
