We struck out for IringaTown. Most of the first hours were spent sleeping and observing Mohammed’s superb driving technique. In the afternoon we passed through Mikumi National Park and we made bets about which animal we would see first. Mohammed picked baboon, David elephant, Stephanie giraffe, Spencer zebra.
As unlikely as it seemed, giraffe was the first animal followed shortly after by wildebeest, impala, and hornbill. Later we saw two blue monkeys scurry across the road in front of us.
Are we in Africa yet?
On the road we stopped to buy onions from a Masai family. Mohammed spoke with them in their own language and touched the heads of the children who smiled and waved.
In IringaTown we had dinner with the General Secretary along with Mohammed and Edward. Afterward we returned to the guest house for a restful night.
