Awesome. Tanzania is an incredible country. I enjoyed Tanga particularly.

These are only the trips that our Free-Range Yank has been on, there are plenty more rides that have not been recorded.

If any group is interested in bringing your plastics and having fun, let us know.

Sheesh, what an adventure, eh?!

I really enjoy reading ride reports like these of trips to Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia, etc.

As soon as I have some bucks in the bank and my ducks in a row, I also wanna do a similar trip. Hmmm, come to think of it, that may end up being in the very distant future. :(
Will have to make a plan for sooner.
