Dar Es Salaam
Viorel had decided he would not stay with our group for our entire time in Africa, so after the program it was time for him to leave. It didn't make sense to endure the seven hour or more drive back to Arusha, and the five hour drive from Arusha back to Nairobi when we were so close to Dar es Salaam. There he could get on a plane back to Nairobi. So we all got into the Land Cruiser and headed to Dar.
Musa knew of a nice hotel there and we were anxious to experience a higher level of accommodations, including a hot shower and air conditioning! We all wanted to see the Indian Ocean, especially Carol. Early the next morning we took the time to beach comb for shells before starting the journey towards "home" in Arusha. The journey took the better part of a whole day.
