After a really lovely time visiting friends and making connections in Iringa, we're off to Arusha on the bus tomorrow morning. The journey is quite a long one at around 14 hours and as a rule, bus drivers here are not known for their caution or safety record. Thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
We will, however see a remarkable amount of the country's geography in a single day. We'll also be traveling back through Mikumi National Park, where we spotted elephant, giraffe, impala, baboons, and zebra along with a massive herd of buffalo on the way up on Saturday.
We are so excited to arrive in Arusha tomorrow night and for the Penn State students who will all be arriving on Friday evening!
