Tanzania 2009 Photo Album
Our usual waking time was moved again in the wrong direction, as we were up at 4 am. Our safari jeep picked us up at 5 am and after some creative shuffling of labels, clothes, and other essentials, most of which were strapped to the roof, we left at 5:20 am. We arrived at Chalinze about 120 km west of Dar just after Mama's trucks.
There was a feeling of excitement and energy knowing these were our last 700 bedkits to distribute. Our set-up routine was complimented by a great photo shooting area and completed with such speed, even the local volunteers were impressed. As we came to our last group photo, Mama and Dave rounded up the volunteers from both countries and there was one last celebratory photo taken. We then had an informal meeting with many thank you's and congraulations for everyone involved.
After handshakes, hugs and smiles we jumped into our safari jeep and on to the final leg of our Tanzania trip for some reflecting, reminiscing, and good old-fashioned rest.
We are heading home tomorrow and will be arriving at Pearson on Friday afternoon.
What a journey this has been and we will return with many stories to share, some of which will be so long that you will have to stop us short and many more photos, each of which will hold a special memory for us.
We are signing off.
Over and Out,
Team Tanzania 2009
