Meeting Daniel

A few weeks ago, myself and a fellow volunteer, Emelie, took a very long, hot and dusty bus ride (13 hours each way!) along the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, through the beautiful Serengeti, passing numerous Maasai villages until we eventually reached the town of Musoma in the very north of Tanzania. We were in search of...

I feel like I’m ‘home,’ just with extra big babies and kids around me that seem to have grown overnight! They are absolutely awesome....

Hannukah and Piki Pikis

Bethan and Maureeni, cheesing for the camera Happy Hannukah from Tanzania! Not a phrase that’s uttered PARTICULARLY regularly, but I’ve always been a tad unconventional.
