Oceans, mountains, & monkeys!

We have officially been in Mlandizi, Tanzania for two weeks and we are not sick of each other yet!
This past week and a half have been very busy. Sunday was a  day off and we made the (very very) bumpy ride over to Bagamoyo. At Bagamoyo we were able to dip our feet into the Indian Ocean for the first time since arriving in Tanzania! Here, we braved the busy fish market and walked around the town.
On Tuesday, we headed out to Morogoro. After a 4 hour wait and a 2 hour bus ride we finally arrived at our home for the next two nights. In Morogoro we had the opportunity to visit SON (Serving Our Neighbour)  international, a local NGO that works with water and community development. We were able to sit down with Todd and Ann Ziems and learn about what the organization does, how they started, and their plans for the future. SON also gave us the chance to visit a primary school to watch them give a lesson about Biosand Filters to the kids.

We also got to venture through the mountains in the surrounding area where we were greeted by rivers, waterfalls, and monkeys in the treetops.
