After nearly a day and night of flying I arrived in Da Es Salaam. Driving to my hotel I was a bit disappointed as not only was it wet and miserable but the city looked a lot like any ordinary city, however, I knew once I got out of town everything would change. I arrived at my motel, dumped my bags and went out and got some decent food from Epi D’Or Cafe bakery and restaurant. I had a feast under the tents set up. The samosas were to die for. I then went back to my hotel and prepared myself for my adventure ahead.
