Heri ya mwaka mpya!

Happy New Year!! I touched down in Kilimanjaro with what I thought would be plenty of time to get to town for the new year's fireworks. Unfortunately they were having trouble attached the stairs to the plane (which makes no sense to me, seeing as they do it everyday). But in any case, it meant we had to sit on the plane for another 45 minutes while they managed to assemble some stairs. So close yet so far!

But my bags (yup, both of them made it this time!) were waiting for me on the other side and I made it into Arusha just in time to get a fireworks-watching spot.

And after a meal today that left me feeling like most of the food was still stuck in my teeth, my first new year's resolution is to floss every day. Wish me luck!


  1. Flossing in Africa is the perfect title for the movie...

    And BTW, what a cute pic of you!

  2. I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT my mom got me a headband that would have been ideal for the peacock costume...too bad it was a couple months late haha

    our room is SO lonely without you! sadface.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR little baby!
