Driving through the fertile hills of Southern Tanzania

It's definitely banana cropping time

They love the tall roofs

We drive through so manu villages

And it's carrot cropping time too

Traffic mayhem through Mbeya

So many tuk tuks

What a heavy load

Tanzanian coffee

Drying coffee the old way

So many trucks on the main road

Motorbikes carry everything

Matthew & Moses show us their ground nuts

Exploring the gorge

Some boys were collecting wood to carry home.... John discovers that it is a heavy load

Some gorgeous trucks

Heading into Iringa

The markets

And right on the street

Tomatoes this time

More crops to go to market

Be careful driving through Mikumi National Park - it is the main road

And inside the park

A fragile load

A very civilized drive into Dar es Salaam

But not so civilized as we head straight through the markets

Up and away over Dar es Salaan on our way to Zanzibar

The Fort at Stone Town

Decorating chests

And the rain came down. With no gutters the streets are raging rivers

Passing a nearby Palace

The lipstick plant

And this one is used in Channel No 5 

The guy up the tree is called a Butterfly

Fishing port - tides out again

Trying to navigate the streets of Nungwi

Watching the fishermen & fisherwomen

A spot of boat building

Inland passing rice fields - great day to plant with so much rain

Back to the beach near Paje

Clives lovely home right on the beach

John and his Masai mate

The iconic Rock Restaurant 

One way to stay dry

Our view from our room at the Mizingani

And there is our Hotel

And the lovely Clinic (that we had to use)

Exploring Stone Town 

So many lovely old doors

A stark reminder of the Slave Trade that happened here

A huge tree crashed down in the night. It just missed our rental car

In Joberg we take the hop on hop off bus (but don't get off)
