Hi, you. How are you today? I hope you are well. Today, let’s get a little visual. I’d like to take you through a picture show. A picture show of what? A picture show about eating and travelling through several East African locales spanning three countries. Are you up for the ride? If so, let’s begin.

Show & Tell: Food, Zanzibar, Family & Friends and, of Course, Me! 🙂

It’s that time again: time for a little show and tell. What should you expect to see this time?

If you came to this post looking for the Travelstart blog, click here for the Travelstart blog for Kenya and here for the Travelstart blog for South Africa. The furthest south I’d ever been in Africa was Tanzania…and it was beginning to irk me! I was born in East Africa and had been living there for the past 12 years; I grew up in West Africa and had traveled there quite a bit; although I had never been to North Africa, I had been to Niger in the Sahel, and that satisfied my curiosity somewhat about North Africa.
