A Tanzania photo album

Jambo!  Karibu sana!  In our safari letters, we mainly shared pictures of Tanzania's wild animals.  But Tanzania's beauty goes far beyond just its wildlife, and permeates all places and things.  Here are some of the many memories that we will carry with us from Tanzania...

We spent most of our time on safari with our heads sticking up out of the truck roof

Whenever a tourist vehicle stops in a town, it is immediately set upon and surrounded by vendors -- we had to learn the Swahili phrase, "sina pesa" ("I have no money")

We saw Tanzanian women carry all kinds of things around on their heads

Maasai nomads (their sandals appear to be made from old tires) -- their red-plaid robes identify them wherever they herd their cattle

Each tribe has its own unique language and dress -- from left to right are Maasai, Hazabe, Tatoga, and Mbulu women

Tanzanian children are beautiful -- these are from Mto Wa Mbu (the ones on the right are playing with a toy car that they have made out of old scraps)

While much of Zanzibar is Muslim, much of the mainland (old Tanganyika) is Christian -- here is a church along the road to Lake Eyasi

Our unanimous choice for "favorite African animal" is the hyrax -- these irresistibly cute little furry animals are not rodents, but distant relatives of the elephant

011028q.jpg (145118 bytes)
Among birds, the pervasive "superb starling" is one of the most stunning -- with an iridescent blue and green back, and a bright orange and white stomach
