Baqi and I flew for what felt like a week. Portland to SFO, to JFK, to Istanbul, to Kilimanjaro, then after finding out Baqi’s checked bag didn’t make it we went on to catch a taxi the village of Embaseni, 35 minutes from Arusha.
We stayed at the UAACC hosted by MamaC and Mzee Pete O’neal.
This is the 2nd year UAACC has hosted us in AHC.
We had a day to chill before the comrades from Soundz of the South arrived from Cape Town.
Then the official activities began.
