After this trip I’m not so sure I’ve changed that much. I mean I definitely was exposed to a lot of new and incredible things but I still feel Like the same old zoe. I still sing to myself and I still like to dance when no ones looking.
Most people are extremely poor here except for the few that are rich, there is no middle class. Everybody talks about money all the time because they need it to survive. Even 50 TSH which is equivalent in canadian money to less than a penny, is a lot for some people in the small villages.
It is very hard to access health care here because it’s expensive and the people don’t have the money. So when people get sick and need help they can’t do anything about it. Water is essential for living, you can’t cook or grow anything.

I used to want to grow up really fast but now after being here i’ve decided that i don’t ever wanna get older, being a kid is way more fun.
The hotel room is as small as my closet. There are 2 rickety and and musty twin beds with furry floral blankets on either side of the room. Yet the city is beautiful.
