Can you believe it’s been so long since we were all stuffing our faces with Mama D’s delicious guac, Christmas rice and fried chicken?! Angel is currently making us all giggle with her cute antics, and she says she misses you all and is blowing you all a kiss west…CATCH IT! We know you have definitely missed the amazing kids at Moshi Primary. The hard work you put into teaching English in your classes is evident in the songs they still sing and their excitement for future groups.
All your hard work during physical service will make an impact on Moshi Primary school for decades to come. The bright blue windows and doors and new floors have definitely brightened up the area and has created a welcoming learning environment.
We still think about the time a lion almost climbed into car 3 in Ngorongoro Crater and the monkeys with their very distinct and colored…ahem…assets…
We know you all had a good time in your safari cars, even though the issues with car 2 got on all our nerves. At least the car breaking down led to a hilarious encounter with a bathroom tree and a Maasai tribe!
It was great to be immersed in the culture with the Chagga tribe and Kill Wizard group, to making coffee, and hearing from so many incredible speakers. Discovering our art skills and learning more about each other through Batik, writing poems, and dancing was so much fun! Did you get your Batik framed yet?!
We truly were an adventurous group. The two days of safari and the hike around the base of Kilimanjaro hopefully helped grow your appreciation for the natural wonders of Tanzania and the great outdoors. Even the freezing mountain river we swam in was appreciated after the shock of the cold water wore off. Kudos to those that made the plunge!
We hope that you still think about your time in Tanzania fondly and have lots of happy memories to look back on. Hopefully you have all learned the coveted carrot butter sandwich recipe!
Remember to stay loose and funky.
