Can you hear it?

I have been looking forward to Sauti za Busara since I found out I was moving to Tanzania, and I have had Nneka’s song ‘Heartbeat’ set to repeat all day.  Next weekend I intend to be in the front row when this amazing woman brings down the Old Fort in Stonetown.

      Hi Maia,

      Can’t wait for next weekend!

      I have tons of recommendations for Dar. Here are a few:
      -best restaurants: Rohobot (Ethiopian – I am here at least once a week), Khana Khazana (Indian), and Mamboz (Tanzanian / best grilled meat you will ever have).
      -best beach: Mbudya Island (accessible via ferry from the White Sands Hotel, in my opinion it is better than the beaches on Zanzibar)
      -you should definitely wander around Kariakoo market, which is the largest open air market in East Africa and try to find the street where the Kitenges are sold, amazing fabrics.
      -best place in Dar for a drink on the ocean is Slipway.

      Let me know if you have any questions! Have a great time.
