Tanzania update (2)
The last couple of days have been pretty productive. We manged to move forward and the meetings we had were pretty productive. It is pretty easy to work with the Project Manager from our clients' organization. He is very proactive and is well aware of the limitations of the technology, and also the limitations of his users. So we managed to nail down the requirements to a manageable and practical level.
Apart from a few streets in Dar Es Salaam, I have'nt seen Tanzania much. Hopefully that will change tomorrow after we do the day safari to Mikumi National Park tomorrow. Though I am not much of a wild life buff, it is said that a trip to Tanzania is not complete without a safari. So, I am hoping to make it complete as fast, easily and cheaply as possible.
The safari's are pretty expensive here. They were asking in the range of $ 350 – $ 450 for a day safari. That did not include food or the entrance ticket to the park. But we managed to negotiate a jeep for $ 300. So the cost per person will be $ 150 + Food + entrance. To be quite honest I was not planning on doing a safari spending that kind of money.
As for the weather, the rain seems to have eased off. So it's a bit hot right now. And yes, they show the FIFA world cup live over here.
I would have enjoyed this trip more if I was not missing my love like I do right now. I am more eager to run back home to you darling. But my work here demands that I stay here for another week. Please hangon for another week, and when I am back, I will make it up to you! I love you!
