I finally landed in Tanzania, excited to meet Moshi again and the rest of the safari team.
I spent the days before meeting our potential business partner, Ikaji, at the hotel, practicing my Swahili.
By spending so much time at the hotel, I grew close with the girls who worked there.
On our way to snap some shots at Ntomoko falls, we got stuck in the mud, much like how I felt about Ikaji.
One morning, Moshi and I headed to buy trees and I sat and reflected on the situation with Ikaji.
Ikaji was simply not a good fit for this project and we had to decide how to proceed.
To help foster a community around the tours we decided to have a party for the people of Kolo.
The dry season had been especially brutal for the village of Iyoli and water was scarce.
This trip was winding to a close, but before I left, Moshi and took a final, bumpy motorcycle ride.
