Mtae, Usambara Mountains, Day 2October 31, 2017 in Tanzania
“Mzuuunguuu”, thats what we constantly hear, no matter where we go. The correct translation is “Traveller”, but here it refers to “White person”. The kids shout it from far away.
On the road the greeting is “Jambo“ “Habari” “Mzuri” “Karibu” and “Asante”, meaning “Hi” “How are you” “Great” “Welcome here” “Thank you”, phrases won’t forget!
Our hike today leads us up and down, through villages and forest, until we arrive at the very end of this mountain range, at Mtae, a wonderful village with views over Tanzania and Kenya. We can even see the silhouettes of the Kilimajaro.
After checking into our basic, but cozy guest house, we go for walk through the village, accompanied by kids making fun with us everywhere we go, “Mzungu” people are quite the attraction for them. It is really really nice here, we enjoy our time a lot.
The day ends with an amazing sunset 🌅Read more
