Hi—Frances here!

Unfortunately, I can’t share any photos because I only have a film camera with me, but I’m sure many will come soon considering all of our other group members brought digital cameras with them.

This is somewhat of a blogging test run—it’s only been four days, so there’s not a whole lot to report yet! Tanzania is beautiful and I love the town we’re in. The hostel we’ve been staying at is great; the owner, Demitra, is so accommodating and incredible.

Our group has been getting along so well—I’m so glad! Everyone already feels so close. Soon we’ll be leaving Morogoro to go to a smaller town and begin our Swahili classes, then split off into various homestays. I can’t wait!

All is well, I’m having a great time, and it’s only been a few days. You’ll hear from us all again soon!
