And… We’re off!

So… along with getting the car ‘safari ready,’ I’ve been itching for a few days of ‘quiet time’ to fine tune preparations and relax (just a little..) before hitting the road. Yes, a few days turned into a week. Yes, I’ve lost count of how many farewell dinners we have had (tonight’s could be the 5th or 6th). Yes, our continued presence in Dar has turned into a running joke with our friends. But yes! We are finally leaving!

The extra weekend spent in Dar was not in vain. Roger Federer won the Wimbledon final and reclaimed the No.1 ranking, and Mark Webber won the British GP. Couldn’t have asked for a better start to our safari!

Today we were fortunate enough to catch some of my esteemed colleagues at ‘TuboCha’ to say thanks and goodbye – and also to receive their well wishes this afternoon. The picture above is our team alongside our old faithful ‘Purple People Eater’.  To all of you – I wish you the very best and I hope the project has great impact in improving the livelihoods and nutrition of rural Tanzanians.

Thanks all for your well wishes and look forward to hearing from you! If you click on the speech bubble on the top right you will be able to leave us a message – please keep in touch!

-Eugene
