Wending our way through Tanzania is beautiful.
And it’s here we first saw the Baobab tree…
trees that have an almost mythical standing in the community.
Tanzania is gorgeous.
The sunrises are just amazing.
Making way to the day.
We stopped at several villages, but our favourite by far was Makambako.
It’s a place we very much hope to come back to.
While it’s not really our ‘thing’ to share photos of people who haven’t explicitly agreed to them…. these kids feel different. J made friends with many of them – a combination of a little Swahili and a little English…. and a whole of lot of childish behaviours meant they got on just fine. I very much hope we’ll come back here one day.
But sooner than we would have liked, we were off again.. and we’re out to see those baobab trees.
These trees are phenomenal. Known as the tree of life, they can store 5000l of water and can live well over 1000 years old.
Their ability to store water and to provide shelter makes them hugely important in this area.
We are told that they provide care for those who wear a little trinket – so both J and G bought a little gift made from the wood of the baobab tree.
All too soon it was time for us to leave Tanzania… the sun setting on an wonderful adventure.
