Day 2 - Orientation and Language Lessons

Habari/how's the news,

Today was a pretty easy day. Hanna (who owns and runs Tanzania Volunteers with her husband Louis) arrived after breakfast. She took us through orientation including how to use the hot water (it is not as easy as it is at home!), house rules and all that kind of stuff. After lunch Beatrice, the house keeper, gave us a Swahili lesson.

In the afternoon, a few of us took a taxi into town so we could get some cash from the ATM and visit the supermarket. I bought 3 snickers bars and a packet of chocolate cream biscuits for 9300 Tanzanian Shillings (about $5.50 AUD).

Tomorrow will consist of more orientation. They will show us around town and we will have another language lesson.

I took some photos of the house and the house's pet tortoise today. I will try to get them uploaded tomorrow.
