And, I now know the meaning of culture shock.

Ideally I would have written more updates so I could have explained everything bit by bit on what was happening...but, internet is a bit tricky here...it was perfect the day we arrived but since then it's been slow and finicky and we have opted to hit up the internet cafe every now and again.
What to say except I am loving this place more and more each day! Besides the fact that arriving in Dar Es Salaam was a complete gong show...it's been a great experience (even the insanity in Dar will become a memory I will cherish). There is honestly so much to discuss and I can't even begin to talk about it - I know I won't do this place justice. I started typing just to remember some stuff and it ended up being about five pages in word, and that only covered about four or five days! Even though I've only been here for less than a week, I feel right at home. And, I still can't get over how kind and welcoming everyone is - it's absolutely amazing!
The sights, the smells, the everything is so new to me. I'm going to just put what I wrote in word instead of typing out again and again what I'm doing... it's long so read if you are interested, if not then mambo anyhow.
