Hi again! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. Ready to tell me one more thing about your East African city? Or are you getting a little tired of my questions? I promise I’ll give you a little break after this post and tell you about a cozy new cafe that I recently discovered in Masaki. For now though, one more question:
Question #6: In your East African town/city, what’s the best local place to work out?
Those of you who read me regularly might already know that I swim every day for exercise (sorry but all those grandiose plans about working out at the beach never materialized). I started to swim regularly in Dar es Salaam because I live in a compound with a swimming pool, and what better exercise than swimming given Dar es Salaam’s heat? (I think I swam twice in all the years that I lived in Nairobi because I always found the water too cold!)
In order to be able to answer this question myself, I recently visited a couple of local gyms that had been recommended to me when I first thought about moving to Dar es Salaam. When I got to what I consider the best local place to work out, which also happened to be the one most often and most highly recommended to me, I completely understood why. For those of you who truly enjoy your gym workouts, you’ll understand it when I say: this place had my blood pumping and longing for the days when I used to regularly go to the gym. To know which gym I’m talking about, see the first comment to this post.
Now, over to you. To let me know the best local place to work out in your East African city, leave me a comment below in the following format:
