The first day in Tanzania didn’t end with the lunch. After the lunch we packed a few things and set out to Marangu, which is a village close to Kilimanjaro. We did not see the mountain due to overcast.

When Carl-Erik retired, Overa and he decided to move to Tanzania and start the work with orphans. They don’t run a traditional orphanage. The organisation they have founded makes sure that couples or single mothers have the means needed to take on a few more children in their families. The idea is that this family becomes the home of that child, even when s/he has become an adult.
In the evening we had supper together with one of these families. Wonderful! Altogether around one hundred children have got new homes through this organisation.

On our way back to Makumira we had coffee at the famous Union Café. Excellent coffee! Later that evening we had dinner at an equally excellent restaurant close to Makumira. The monkeys in the trees and the birds in the dam did not disturb us at all.
