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.

The Mwalimu Nyerere/Mt. Kilimanjaro Charity Climb 2011 (post 2 of 15)
Thursday 15 September 2011
I am in “standing mode”, busy to
the core, hovering over my office desk rather than sitting down as
most people do. And as always, I am also in apprehension that I have several
important tasks I should complete before my departure for the annual
Kilimanjaro climb, but there appears to be little time to complete these tasks.
As I wondered how I would travel to Moshi
this time around I recalled that someone I know mentioned he was
driving to Arusha tomorrow. I called him to find out whether I could
hitch a ride and he reassured me I could.
Later, he came up with what
I suspected was a monumental work of fiction about having to suddenly change
plans and drive through the Serengeti during the night to rescue
another colleague who had been involved in a road accident.
Later in Musoma I found out that the
Extra Musica Band was playing tonight and I suspected my ride to
Arusha had been compromised by their presence.
Having being assured of a possible ride
through the Serengeti tomorrow I left in the evening and spent the
night at Bunda.
