Week 7 - Slow Train Coming

<<prev next>>

My ticket for the TAZARA seems to be moving slower than the train Ė and that has a reputation for arriving days late. It took weeks for an agent in Dar to actually buy the ticket in the first place. Since then it has come to the island with one of the ferry captains and apparently has got as far as the Safari Lodge hotel (5 minutes walk). Any moment now Iím sure it will reach me. Maybe itís because they deal with tickets all the time or maybe itís in the "Swahili culture" thereís no hurry because I donít need it till Tuesday anyway.
