|playing with my new camera :) I'm loving the macro setting! All the plants and wildlife here are so beautiful!|
The second day I was here, we went back to town to finish getting groceries in the morning, and to exchange our money into shillings. I felt so rich as $10 is 15,000 shillings! Haha! Here's how Tanzanian money looks, in case you were wondering.
We have frequented the same markets for the past couple of weeks: Deo's (a mainly produce market, with some other basics too), Aleem's Grocery (a small grocery store stocked with pantry items, some butter and meats and cheese), and a bread shop. We also made our first visit to Nakumatt one day, which is the closest thing Tanzania has to Walmart!
The next day (Sunday) we went to church at International Christian Center (ICC), a church here in Moshi that does a Swahili and English service. It brought back memories of being in Togo!
In the evening we went over to the Helbling's house for an orientation of sorts- everyone on the Global Effect team pitched in to help us orient ourselves with Moshi, and the culture. It was very helpful, and much-needed!
We are off into the second week of school already! After lots of adjustments and switches, I can't wait to settle in with my students! But that's a post for another time!
Much Love, Allie
