Hey everybody! It’s been a while since we have blogged and we apologize. Sometimes we don’t have the luxury to pick up the computer to write out our blog due to a lack of power. Hands4Africa has a generator that works just fine, but we have to conserve our battery power on our computers. Most of the time our power is out for about 8-10 hours but on other occasions, it is for longer. Maybe next time we can write it out on paper ;).

Let us share with you the great things about the visa run. Tanzania is BEAUTIFUL. Once we were on the buses and staring out the windows for hours, the mountains and everything else were absolutely breathtaking. The route started from Morogoro, cut through Mikumi National park, through Iringa, then finishes in Kyela or the border town. While we were ascending up the Udzungwa Mountains, we saw a troop of yellow baboons, which was great. There is even a section of southern Tanzania with beautiful tall evergreens which reminds us of the States. Believe it or not, some parts of Tanzania are very chilly. People who have never been to Africa assume that it’s swelteringly hot, but in a lot of places it isn’t. So even though we had somewhat of a hard introduction into our first visa run, it was balanced out with beautiful scenery and a good story to tell. :)

Well, we feel like this blog turned out great and we hope you enjoyed it. Sometimes it is difficult to figure out what to write about being in Berega because it is all becoming second nature. Nothing sticks out anymore. Guess that is a good thing ;)
Take care all,
