DAY 11, Monday 8.2.2010, Dar Es Salaam
Before we left from the Rastafar place we made a tour. There was a workshop where women were making clothes for adults and children, bags, fabrics etc and on the other side there was "mens workshop" where they made animal sculptures of wood. The place was like a village where we had a chance to learn their culture and their way of life.
After byebyes to all, we took Daladala to Mikadi Beach. It was a quite interesting, in old style HIACE was packed to its limits, 24 adults + four little kids + frontseat, driver and our backpacks. You really can imagine that it was quite tight. TIA...
When we arrived to Mikadi Beach we really saw that it was the place we were looking for: Very nice beach by the Indian Ocean, swimming pool, pool table, beach bar, beach volleyball, hamack (riippumatto?) and wonderful Bandas where we're living right now! So we decided to stay for a little longer. There we met some Tanzanian-Zambian guy called Reese. He was spending his one month vacation in Mikadi and wanted to play pool with us. Of course he was almost professional but still we won many games. After about 20 rounds we decided to go to check Tanzania's night culture and celebrate Heikki's birthday. First we went to Casino and after it to some kind of Indian dance bar, customers can buy leis(necklace) and give them to the girls. They were wearing kind of tradiotional customs. Little different than places in Finland! That night was funny and the chicken we bought from street grill after dancing was propably the best tasted bird ever! By tikitikis (motorbikes) we came back home, safely and well enterteined (All thanks go to Reese, our best Dar Es Salaam guide ever!) The time was almoust 6 am. and we still had a little picnic before going to bed, cos boys were hungry, of course! So Happy Birthday to Heikki, we are sure that he will not ever forgot his 21st birthday ;) Hakuna matata!
