We are now at the Marangu Hotel. Like the Kibo Hotel, it boasts a 1932 vintage and whereas the Kibo is a more imposing edifice, the Marangu is layed out Campus style in sprawling manicured grounds with rooms comprising individual residences.
Our own residence has 8 beds which one would normally consider a little excessive, however right now every bed is strewn with gear, gear and more gear!
Dora, the equipment queen/Quarter Master has gone though our stuff, and given invaluable advice over what to bring - and not!
On the 'luggage' front, - Sarah's bag has arrived (via Nairobi - go figure!) but not mine! Panic... who me? However I have assurance that it is now in Tanzania and I should receive it later today. Thank god I bought this phone and have been able to 'motivate' the powers that be!
