One more week!

Hi everyone! This is our official GIEU TANZANIA BLOG!!! With finals week over, we are all looking forward to leaving in just a few days.

We will use this blog to record our trip, with updates about twice a week. Check back often to hear more about our exciting African adventure.

So here’s the plan:

Next week Friday, we will all arrive in Dar es Saalam, Tanzania, and we will stay there over the weekend, orienting ourselves to East African time and visiting the cultural sites in Dar es Salaam and Bagamoyo.

On Monday, May 7, we will arrive in Lushoto. We will live there with our host families and will work at three institutions: a school for the blind, a children’s home, and a boarding school for students with disabilities. We will be in Lushoto until May 25.

On the 26th, we will leave for Arusha and will go on safari to Ngorongoro (including the Oldupai Archeological site) and Serengeti until May 29th. The last couple days of our trip will be in Arusha and Kilimanjaro, where we will catch a plane back to the US.

That’s about it for our first post. We have a lot of packing and last-minute planning to do before we leave. We’ll update you soon – from Tanzania!!
