day nine took us to the village of manyoni. we passed through lots of villages this day -- some we stopped at, others we just drove though. and to be completely honest, i was pretty ready to be done taking photos of bicycles by this point. but i kept shooting bicycles. :-) nothing like seeing an intanet' hotel as we depart mashewa.
another village that welcomed us to eat chapatis and drink tea. i don't really even like tea, but their tea was awesome. and things that are served hot in TZ are served really hot, which i love. i have a thing about my hot stuff being really hot and my cold stuff really cold.
the women in the building thought i was pretty darn funny. the chapatis were actually cooked in that side little room.
and off we went.
AEIOU. at our lunch stop.
i loved all the footprints all over the front of this house.
you don't see all that many brick homes in TZ.
my driver, hamisi, waiting with some of the local villagers.
looking down from a bridge. washing clothes.
right after this shot, these two boys ran and hid.
crossing the bridge, where i took the two photos above from.
there were so many children around our campsite. i loved how they welcomed the riders.
mike played with the kids for hours. they loved him.
and kaitlin and marc taught the kids the macarena.
it was such a joy watching the kids have fun and play together -- kids just being kids!
they loved the beach balls we gave them.
and as we headed into camp, they crawled up as close as they were allowed and just watched and waited.
