Day 27- Tanzania

Mmmm Samosas


I had little sleep in this morning, sore and tired after my trek. I had a big breakfast of African samosas (my new favourite food) and other delights washed down with an African herbal tea. Mmmm the samosas... Just thinking of them makes my mouth water. Never have I ever tried such good samosas (and I am not usually a samosa fan). They were so crisp and flavorsome. It was then off to the bus (taking some samosas as a snack) for my trip to the airport. Throughout the bus trip I slept most of the way, dreaming of the life changing experience of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and of all the lovely people I met. The trip went a lot quicker this time and before I knew it I was booking into my hotel at the airport. I than decided to go out for a walk to grab some dinner. When I was walking down the street you'll never guess what happened. I was pushed over by a man and he then tripped over my feet. When he fell a bag and gun fell out of his backpack. I quickly kicked it away and asked for help. The police was called and I had to help them investigate. I was a bit worried I was going to miss my flight the next day so I made it clear that I had to leave the next day. They told me that would be fine, however, I needed to be on standby in case I was needed in court (which fortunately they would pay for with the help of my insurance). As soon as I was let out of the police station I contacted the Australian Embassy and told them my situation. I then contacted my airlines just in case there was a problem and notified my insurance. Fortunately, I was told that I should be able to leave the next day. Brekkie_feast.jpgstopping_t..he_tortoise.jpg
