Mountain and Town, Morogoro

In the morning I hiked in the mountains behind Morogoro with Cloudy, a local guide. After I came wheezing and panting to my senses sometime around midmorning, I came joyfully down from the mountain. I am not cut out to be a long-distance hiker.

In the afternoon, Barry, Doreen, Priscilla and the girls went to the Hotel Acropol. The Acropol is fascinating, the decor unique, and it has a real presence. You can almost feel the place pining for the days before Tanzania’s independence, when the Germans occupied the large, whitewashed stone complexes in the mountains.
