Surpisingly enough, one of the most difficult things for me to get used to in Tanzania has been the smells. Not that they are bad- some are, many are not- but the familiarity or lack there of often messes with my head. The scents that are not familiar are easy enough to deal with, I am after all thousands of miles away from home, of course it is going to smell differently. However I’m always thrown for a loop whenever I smell rain or onions and garlic cooking, because these scents that I so readily associate with home don’t seem to belong so far from home.
Tomorrow is our last official day of language training, and within 2 weeks I will know where in Tanzania I will be spending my next two years. Life is going well, and I promise there are pictures, but I am not even going to attempt to post them until I get to site, so you’ll just have to wait. Think of it as a learning experience, I’m on African time after all.Comments: 2 Comments
