The title of this post comes from Bakiri, our very animated, very lovable partner at the Institute of Accountancy. I argued that it should not be "land of Kilimanjaro," but rather "land of Bakiri," but his modesty, for once, was too much.
- Most bizarre item I've seen strapped on a bicycle rack: a lawn mower. The rider looked a bit unsteady navigating the speed bumps on Njiro road, but he never lost his balance, and drivers, surprisingly, gave him wide berth. Runners up for the award are: a tower of six suitcases that dwarfed the rider, and a large computer printer.
- Fring has been indispensable in keeping in touch, as it usually much easier to carry the iPhone than the laptop and find a WiFi connection. Now that Skype is available for iPhone, however, I think I'll switch, assuming I can ever finish downloading the app.
- I made arrangements today with a colleague at IAA to visit his uncle's coffee farm outside Arusha. I'm unbelievable excited for this, possibly more excited than I am to see Zanzibar. His uncle is on the Tanzania Coffee Board, so you know it's legit. Expect me to come back with 50kg sacks of coffee.
