Hello! Are you still interested in a beach workout buddy? I’d love to do a workout before or after work (either 6.30am or 5.30pm…) near Obama drive if that works for you?

Hi Menina,

Welcome to Chick About Town, and thanks for leaving me a comment.

Unfortunately, I work and live all the way across the city in Mikocheni near Kawe. Are you new in Dar? 🙂


Ah, pity!
Sort of new…. About 4 months here. Your blog is super helpful for settling in though! Thanks so much.
