We also watched TV for a while which I enjoyed immensely. ITV comes from Dar
and with an aerial booster you can get a good signal. Other people’s adverts
always seem funnier:
- There’s the black middle class family playing charades that promotes tooth
- The couple who’s car breaks down in the countryside and because the "hip"
guy is on the wrong mobile phone network they have to hitch a lift home on
a trailer carrying livestock;
- And the luxury coach service between Dar and Arusha with clichéd
images – business woman reading the Financial Times, lovey couple holding
hands and smiling at each other, enthusiastic child waving at a lone Maasai
on a craggy outcrop (and of course the Maasai waves back), "in flight" video
– coffee – toilet. Air conditioned and quick (roads permitting) - Grandma
and Grandpa meeting the coach as it arrives (presumably on time).
