Update from Tanzania

February 19, 2015

From painting classrooms and leading activities with children to exploring Africa by safari, our students and teachers in Tanzania this month have had so many amazing experiences. Read on for their thoughts on the trip so far.

From Victoria:

When we arrived at the camp we were all anticipating what it would be like. As we entered the gates we were all stunned by what we saw. There was beautiful green, well-kept scenery, huge tents and, most appealing, the swimming pool! Don't get me wrong, it was no 5-star hotel, but it was a lot more than I ever expected. So in all, if I had to sum up my first impressions of the camp, it would be "amazing!"

From Mrs. Williams:

Part way up the mountain above the local village, I decided my knees were not going to handle the decent and chatted with the guide about sitting out. There was a crowd just down the hill- it turned out there was a village meeting. Now, of course, this was in Maasai, so I was initially very confused. What quickly became clear, through, was that village meetings have a somewhat universal nature.

There was the harried choir of proceedings, trying valiently to keep order. The elder statesman who had frankly seen it all before. The overly vehement protagonists with accompanying exaggerated gestures and pleading looks. The quorum who would rather adjourn to the bar. The earnest new committee member who ensured proceedings were followed.

I was clearly the butt of a few jokes as discussions progressed, but was left with that strong feeling of similarity, not differences, which is actually the lesson of Tanzania itself.


We can't wait to hear more from the BISB group in Tanzania. Stay tuned to the blog for more details and photos as we get them!
