Driving, Driving, and More Driving.

I have to say something about the roads and my experience travelling on them, as that is where we spent the bulk of our time.

Out of the 13 days we were there, we spent 10 of them driving ALL DAY LONG!

The roads from Arusha to Morogoro and Dar Es Salaam were in fairly good condition.

There were a few unorthodox (when seen from my perspective) road signs, and ingenious warning signs. Instead of orange triangles to warn of an upcoming accident or road obstruction, the people put down green leafy tree branches along the road. It was very effective, and we saw many accidents “advertised” in this way. (Their frequency and number was slightly upsetting to me).
