After a 14h journey in total (including an 11h bus drive with only one stop to buy food and go to the washroom) I finally made it back to my home away from home, the intern house in Dar es Salaam.
How do I best describe the past week? So much has happened, so many memories were made.
I will write separate posts about each stop we made and each location we visited, but for now let me just sum it up:
I slept in a tent in the middle of the Serengeti, surrounded by Hyenas and other wildlife animals. I watched the stars at night, in completely in awe of how close, how big and how many they were. I drove a land rover in the Serengeti. I slept in a tent, wrapped up in 10 layers of clothes and two sleeping bags at the rim of Ngorongoro Crater and later discovered that there was a Buffalo standing right next to us. I hiked 8km up to Kilimanjaro and then back down. I had super interesting conversations with local people and Maasai, soaking up every information I could get my hands on.
All the early mornings, the countless hours spent on buses or in cars, everything was worth it in the end.
Everyone should go to Africa at least once in his life, if only to see the stars.
