I have relocated. I moved to this coastal city last Sunday. It makes today my 1 week anniversary, joy. I am not a broody person so no I’m not home sick. Besides every one is just a click of a button a way, double joy. I got to mention this, Dar es salaam is a heck lot different from where I come from.
– For starters, I’ve got to endure some really tightly packed rides to and from work on a daily basis. Not so cool. Even less cool when my feet are being stepped on and then I’ve to smell some big time stench from some guys armpits. Transport nightmare.
– Every one seems to be out to get me. It’s like they can smell a newbie from miles away. I get dodgy deals from every corner even the street vendor tried to sell me a water bottle with 20% mark up. Save me!
– If it wasn’t for my foursquare app I’ll be lost for places to hang out. I would like to announce that I just have one more ‘check-in’ and I’ll be a mayor at Pronto.
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy this city and there is so much am looking forward to do. I’ve got it all jotted down on my ‘to do list’, beach trips, food sampling, bike rides, pool etc. I’m campaigning to be ‘Mayor of Dar es salaam’. On foursquare!
Wearing my Nikes and tapping on my HTC handset, I’m looking to have a blurst out here.
