The rains have started early

Last night was a long night – lots of power cuts and then the rains started – wow they are loud.  My hotel in their wisdom (?!?) has decided to dig up the road outside the hotel at the start of the rainy season causing mud to be everywhere.  But what the rains have meant though is that today the temperature is really nice.  Don’t have a thermometer so can’t tell it exactly but my guess is that it is low 20s rather than mid 30s so I am happy – Nancy on the other hand is walking around wrapped in a blanket – which I think is a slight exaggeration.  It would be great if the temperature stayed like this until the end of the rainy season at the end of May however I have been informed that this won’t happen and the chances are it will be back to its true boiling self soon enough. Especially as the rainy season is not meant to start here until April – try telling that to the weather though!

On the plus side I met some Americans at breakfast who are only here for a short time as part of an agriculture project in the nearby villages but their project manager lives in Korogwe and they have promised to introduce me to her which would be really good if it comes off so at least I will know one other person in Korogwe! 

Struggling with motivation today after the weekends relaxing and diving.


About becksupeverest

Took a leave of absence from work and decided to work as a volunteer in Tanzania based in Korogwe, a small town in the northeast of the country (combined with some travels around East Africa). The project is to look at the cost base, strategy and business plan of a tree nursery NGO - one of the Gatsby Foundation projects.
