TANZANIA Dar es Salaam
Things are great in Tanzania! My host family is welcoming and accommodating, and the same goes for the KEI Director). I am having a lot of fun and meeting great friends. Thank you very much for all your help and patience in making all this happen. I really appreciate everything KEI has done for me. Coming here is nothing short of a dream I had for years.
