Tuesday in Arusha

Our trip from the USA to Tanzania went very well and we arrived in Arusha Saturday night.

Yesterday (Monday) we went with two of our contacts and their staff on a visit to two sand dam projects up near the Kenya border. For more on sand dams see this link for the ECHO technical note on Sand Dams.

It was encouraging to witness the cooperative effort between the communities and the assisting NGOs (Non-governmental Organizations).


Since we were in Tanzania we decided we should see some of the countryside so on Sunday we went on a day trip to Tarangire National Park. Photos from that safari are online in this web album.
