First, the obvious-- The Wildlife, the Fauna!
|This giraffe wasn't going to move from the road in Mkumi National Park. We weren't going to rush her!|
Zebras, lions, rhino, hippo, giraffe, monkeys... these are all found wild in Tanzania. You can see them in America, in the zoo. I always think they look so sad in those small pens after seeing them roam on wide open plains in Tanzania.
We having in our yard lemon trees, lime trees, jack fruit tree, mango tree, custard apple tree, cashew trees, banana trees, and coconut trees. There are many palm trees in our yard as well as giant bamboo, moringa trees, African Tulip trees, and deciduous trees as well. And that is just our yard! There are giant baobab trees here, and so many beautiful flowering trees, and flowers in Tanzania. It's like living in a botanical garden.

Some of my favorite foods
Nundu. Nundu is fat from the hump on the back of the cow. It is served alongside mishkaki (shish-kebobs).
Tanzanian style Barbecue
And many other favorites like Mchecha (fried spinach), pilau (spicy rice and meat dish), chapati (thick tortillas), Tanzanian style beans, and many, many others
-Our house doesn't have glass in the windows because you always want to let in a breeze to keep cool.
-Motorcyle helmets are required by law... but sometimes they are sitting on the top of a ladies' very high hairstyle! I wish I could have found a photo of that one.
-Cattle walking the streets, including in front of our front gate.
-Open air used clothing market. This is where we do all of our clothes shopping here.
