Shamba

The blog is long overdue for an update. Where to begin…

Well, one piece of news from 2008 is that Zawadi and I have purchased a shamba (piece of farmland) in Tanzania. It’s down Kigamboni way, in an area called Kisarawe. Depending on the delay at the ferry, it’s only about 20 minutes or so from Dar es Salaam. Supposedly a bridge is going to be built in the not too distant future, which would make access from Dar much easier.

Shamba in Tanzania

The land’s a little over 6 acres (2.5 hectares), not all that big, but has some beaut old trees – coconuts, cashew nuts, a Baobab tree etc. Plus of course mango trees! Including one that is at least 20 metres high.
