After an amazing day in the sun with the Global Effect fam, we parted ways, as three of the families went back to Moshi. Myself, my roommate Cynthia, the Battersons, and Hope's administrator Jenn stayed the night. We had a delicious meal at the clubhouse that evening in the garden, right off of the golf course there.
They opened the place up, just for us, about ten days before their re-opening due to remodel. It is a beautiful place!
After several rave reviews, we all had to try the steak with garlic and herb butter! It was so good! Definitely a fun treat!
Ryan said that if you look on Google Maps for the TPC plantation, you will notice that everywhere around it is brown, but the plantation is green due to all the sugarcane! I love how lush everything is there.
I have a thing for purple flowers! This tree was so cool, because, from the same stem came different colored flowers! I just thought they were so beautiful.
After dinner, we went back to the B&B for some Apples to Apples before bed. This is how the living room looks:
We even had air conditioning in each bedroom! It was glorious! Here is the bedroom where I stayed. The sliding doors went out into the backyard.
The next morning we woke up and got packed, and had a delicious breakfast prepared for us!
Then we went driving back through the fields of sugarcane to Moshi, picked up some friends, and headed to Arusha- a larger city about 2 hours away from Moshi.
The scenery on the way up there was STUNNING.
Because Arusha is a bigger city, we had to be really careful with our valuable items (cameras, phones, purses, etc.). I wasn't able to take any pictures of the city, but we did go to a fun restaurant for lunch, where it was safe to take some. The restaurant we went to was the Blue Heron.
It was a weekend I won't forget! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to see things I might not see and go places that I might not go, thanks to Global Effect!
This week I have my first ever parent-teacher conferences on Friday! It's crazy that I've been here for almost two months already!
Much Love, Allie
