Monday night I had a phone call from 2 friends of Mya, Renee’s friend I had met during my weekend in Dodoma. They were coming to Morogoro and wondered if I could suggest somewhere to stay. “Stay here, we would love to meet you and we have room”, I said
...And so began three wonderful days sharing our lives with two friendly, easy going, Swiss visitors, Florien and Alexandra. They arrived at 2pm in the heat of Tuesday. The bus trip from Dar had been marred with their busload having to assist the victims of a serious bus accident about one hour out of Morogoro. Not a nice start to their holiday!
Their taxi went to the wrong ‘White Housie’ resulting in me standing on Dodoma Road in the hot sun waving down their taxi (I hoped it was their taxi... having not met them yet!) and directing them to our house! That evening, we all to the little bar at the end of our dirt track for sundowners and to meet Mchuwa’s friend, Maringo. He was to be Florien and Alex’s guide on their hike up into the Uluguru Mountains, to the waterfalls in the Choma region.
