It’s been almost 3 months since I last shared the best of my Instagram feed with you, so that’s what I am going to do today.

I am pleased to share that the very best of these photographs—or at least the ones my followers liked most on Instagram—are of my hometown, Bukoba. You’ll find … Continue reading

Lushoto is the name of both a town and a district, located in Tanzania’s northernmost coastal region, Tanga. Although the region of Tanga borders the Indian Ocean, Lushoto lies further inland, nestled in the scenic Usambara Mountains (see the map below).

My mother was turning 71, and since she’d been saying for a while that she was yearning to travel, I suggested we do just that for her … Continue reading

Whatever the case, today, I’d like to share the best of these photos and videos with you. Because … Continue reading

Uganda: 8 Photos with the Most Likes on Instagram

I’ve mentioned on this blog before that I am part-Ugandan. I am sure, therefore, that it won’t come as much of a surprise to you then to learn that I spend a lot of time there, though I don’t write about it that often. My Instagram photos, on the other hand, are a whole different story. There, I share lots of pictures from my time in Uganda, be it when I’m hanging out in the city, indulging in touristic travel, or simply attending to family- or friend-related business. Today, I’d like to share some photos, posted since my last Instagram roundup post, that received the most likes on Instagram. With one exception, all these … Continue reading
