Day 4 - Jambo, Tanzania!

Day 4 - Jambo, Tanzania!

Sunday January 17, 2010
Dar Es Salaam

Our flight landed in Dar Es Salaam at 8 a.m. and I was in Africa at last. I'd been to Egypt previously, but North Africa doesn't seem like real Africa. I sailed through customs due to the fact that I'd gotten my tourist visa before I left DC, although if I'd gotten it at the airport instead it would've only cost $50 as opposed to the $100 I paid. Oh well.

Man was it hot and my on the ground in Tanzania. It was like DC on a really bad day in August. I was expecting the heat given that Tanzania is south of the equator and January is the height of summer there, but the humidity caught me by surprise. When I left the airport there was a short, pleasant fellow holding a sign with the name of the tour company I booked the trip through standing there waiting for me and the other members of the tour. His name was Michel and he would be our tour leader for the Dar and Selous portions of our trip.

I was the first member of our party to exit the airport. A few minutes later the sisters appeared. Before I left DC all I knew about the group was that there would also be a pair of sisters from England on the trip. I had tried to pick out a pair of women travelling together as we were waiting at the gate in Heathrow, but I hadn't spotted them. The sisters turned out to be Shelley, and office manager, and Donna, a police constable. Both were from Woking (a suburban community just outside London) and often travelled together on adventure holidays.

Michel informed us that there were two more people in our tour group who were arriving on a later flight, but that they would go ahead and take us to the hotel now and come back and pick up the others. Driving from the airport to our hotel on the outskirts of Dar it quickly became apparent that we were the only non-Black people in sight. It gives you a bit of an idea of what it might be like to not be White in America. You feel a bit like an attraction in a circus sideshow.

Tanzania is a poor but peaceful and orderly country and the people are generally quite welcoming and pleasant. The country was formed by the merger of what had been two separate entities, the mainland region of Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar. Tanganyika had been a German colony starting in the late 1800s up until after World War I, when it was taken over by the British. Zanzibar in turn had been ruled by a dynasty of sultans who originally came from Oman. Both Tanganyika and Zanzibar gained their independence in the late 1960s and merged to form the current nation of Tanzania.

The predominant language in Tanzania is Swahili (the lingua franca of Africa, which originated in Tanzania), but English is also widely understood. The bulk of the visitors to Tanzania come from Italy and the UK, with quite a few Dutch vacationers as well. Not many Americans go there. The unit of currency is the Tanzanian shilling. Although there are approximately 1350 shillings to the dollar, unlike Egypt the prices in Tanzania are still quite high and your money doesn't go all that far.

Our hotel, the Slipway, was on the fringes of Dar near the local yacht club and marina. It was in an isolated spot but there many shops and a few restaurants nearby. It wasn't quite as fancy as perhaps I'd unconsciously been expecting, but then I remembered that this was an adventure safari and not a luxury one after all. It was perfectly serviceable, however, and did have air conditioning. We reached the hotel around 9:30 a.m. and I checked into my room, climbed into my bed, pulled the mosquito netting around me, and slept until about 3:30 p.m.

Michel had made arrangements to meet up with all the members of our tour group for dinner at 7 at a small outdoor cafe adjacent to our hotel, so I had a bit of time to kill until then. I walked around the hotel grounds taking photos for a bit and then retreated back to the air conditioned comfort of my room and watched an African soap opera for a while.

It was about a rich guy named Fred who came from a small village but now lived in the city. His wife was uber-religious but as yet infertile and his mother was scheming with another woman from his village who had a young, lazy, pretty daughter to send the girl to stay with Fred and his wife with the plan that she would steal Fred away and give the women lots of grandbabies. They even took the girl to the local witch doctor before she left for the city and got her a love charm to help win Fred away. Soap operas are pretty much the same the world over. They're always about money and relationship problems and are uniformly melodramatic and ridiculous. Doesn't stop them from being entertaining though.

Dinnertime came around and I was finally able to meet the remaining members of our group - Roger, a retired chemist and schools inspector and his wife Ruth, a retired nurse. They were from Chesterfield, a small city in the middle of England, although Ruth was originally from Denmark and had migrated to th

Lofty Dreams

Lofty Dreams

'Lofty Dreams' - Calitzdorp, Western Cape Province - South Africa.

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil." ~James Lane Allen

This I don't it feel fully explains the architecture found in the town but the only reference I could find at the moment: "Apart from the imposing Dutch Reformed Church - a National Monument in the New Byzantine style - the general architecture of Calitzdorp is strongly English-derived. Different styles have been adopted to different functions, e.g. the so-called Karoo-style was used for "church houses". Simplified renderings of dominant British styles e.g. Regency, Late Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian became fashionable for more permanent dwellings. Strolling through the town is an architectural adventure."


As of 15 April 2010 I am officially releasing my new collection of Sepia investment fine art photography along with a change in pricing structure - the price simply increases by a fixed margin as the edition number gets higher and the remaining prints of a particular photo become also favors the first few buyers considerably more than others buying a higher numbered print...

Print Size 24.96cm x 37.27cm (dimensions inclusive of a small white border) contact me at for larger print size inquiries.

Prices exclude any shipping costs. Prints alone are shipped via a sturdy thick tube and the print itself will be wrapped in plastic and paper inside. 7 - 14 days standard air post delivery (Excluding any act of God and delays caused by weather conditions as per the recent volcanic eruptions in Iceland grounding flights.) -

Shipping charges of a print in a tube are considerably lower than when it might be framed. Any and all professional framers around the world would flatten and know how to best frame the photo - Framing is an art in itself and it's a wonderful experience to see the photo 'completed' with the final art step of framing and seeing it hanging on your wall giving you a dimensional depth window to experience the photo as if you were there right next to myself when I took it.

*Rand prices calculated at the exchange rate of April 15th - 2010:
1 USD = 7.37181 ZAR


The print as per preference and only on special request can be converted to true monotone black and white. Add 5% to the print price only as specified above. payments are now finally a reality in South Africa and can be used.
