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.

Visitors to Butiama: Charles Mwandu
I have just realized that there is a category of visitors to Butiama that I have neglected to mention in the past: those who come to work at Butiama.

One of them is Charles Mwandu, a friend of mine since my student days in Shinyanga, over 30 years ago. He is a satellite television technician and was at Butiama a few years ago to set up the satellite television system for JKN Hotel.

The one facing the camera in the top photograph is Kihengu who mans a grain milling machine and helped Charles during the installation work.
