Dag 20 Dar es Salaam Tanzania

 

We arrive in Dar es Salaam early. What you thought you knew about traffic gets a whole new meaning here. We are now quite handy with manoeuvring the vehicles in traffic: push in and drive. We drive the whole day at a snails pace looking for a place to overnight. Everything is too expensive for the SA Rand.

We end up staying with Happy, a very jovial and helpful Tanzanian lady who stays in a huge colonial home – we live like kings, despite the extremely high humidity.

Dar es Salaam is a modern city with all the major companies, for example Woolies, Spur and cell-phone companies. It is a prosperous city.

There is also a BRT bus-lane and we use it without much effort. I think I will make such a suggestion to the City of Cape Town.

Kom vroegdag in Dar es Salaam. Wat jy gedink het van verkeer kry hier n nuwe betekenis- maar ons is nou al bedrewe met indruk en ry. Ry die heelmiddag met kruipspoed op soek na slaapplek, Alles te duur vir die SA Rand. Eindig by Happy, ‘n baie oulike en hulpvaardige Tanzaniese vrou met n groot ou koloniale huis – bly soos konings, die humuniteit is baie hoog.

Dar is n moderne stad met alle groot maatskappye, Woolies, Spur , selfoon maatskappye, ‘n vooruitstrewende stad. Het ook n BRT buslaan, ons gebruik dit sommer, sal so voorstel aan die Stad Kaapstad maak.
