I blog what I observe around me, and I end up writing on a wide range of subjects including cultural tourism, customs and traditions, travel, and mountaineering. Specifically, what happens in and around the village of Butiama, the birthplace and final resting place of Tanzania's founding president, Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere.

Green men are not only from Mars
The on-going election campaign meetings of the various political parties bring out the brightest of party colours: on t-shirts, caps, scarves, and on humans.
The green men of Musoma.
Saturday's campaign meeting at Musoma that was addressed by the ruling party's presidential candidate who is also Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete was a sea of yellow, green, and included these three party supporters who painted their bodies green.
The paint and the bare chests gives them a rather menacing look. I suspect without the paint they are normal law-abiding citizens.
