Happy New Year!

As you read this we are celebrating the new year in Dar Es Salaam, the big dirty city on the coast of Tanzania. The good thing is that we are not actually staying in the dirty city part, but the beach 7km away from it.

We're staying at the Best Western, which is the fanciest hotel we've stayed in whilst on a holiday here (we usually stay in dirty places for a few dollars a night, but this time we decided to splurge). The main reason for the splurge is that when we travel I usually get sick: I've had malaria, typhoid and dysentery. We figured it's pretty much impossible to get sick while staying in a best western.

We've got 5 nights here and then back to work. Jouni my husband has a new job working for the British council teaching English: I'm still teaching 5 year olds at an international school.
