We woke up early to go do some shopping around town. I wanted to buy some Tanzanian fabric for my little sister, and we went around town to find some Changa for us. I found a very cute purple one that I would give to my little sister
We got ready and met with Payal and Pricilla (Sarah’s friends), to go to Arusha! Two hours ride later, we arrived in Arusha! We walked around a bit to look for our hotel, and found Hotel 7-11 and a double room with full size beds for 30,000 Tsh! We split so each of us would just pay 7,500 Tsh! The hotel was clean and cute, well worth the money. Christina then later joined us at the hotel, and paid for a single room for 25,000 Tsh.
We went back out to town to shop around, and ate a little bit of food. I tried this Ceres sparkling grape juice, and it was unbelievably good. Ceres is a brand that makes pure fruit juice, and oh my it always exceeds my expectations. No added sugar or preservatives. Highly recommended!
We got a ride to go to the movie theater outside of town, and we saw Ocean’s 13! The theater is in this new mall complex and it’s quite nice. The movie was very good. I really liked it and it had the feel of the Ocean’s 11.
We then got a ride back to town for dinner. We went to McMoody’s and had pizza! Their milk shakes are so thick and good, and I definitely stuffed myself with food there. We sat around for a lil more while Christina and I had some tea while we waited to go out. We got picked up by Samir, Pricilla’s friend, and we went out to go drinking!
We first went to a small bar just outside of town, it was a quite chill place, and we sat around and took some shots. Mmmm I like tequila. We then went to Maasai Camp, which is a pretty popular club, and it was a very cute place. I finally got to see Tish and Tish’s boy, Joseph! We talked for a little bit, but they had to go! I got more to drink from the bar and surprisingly I was not drunk at all. I ordered a screwdriver, and was hoping that it would come in fresh squeezed orange juice… But I was let down, and it was some nasty juice. I downed the screwdriver anyways and went back to chilling with my friends!
The night was good, until we realized that Christina’s wallet+keys+everything is missing~ Needless to say, we did a lot of running around, and we went back to the hotel. After getting back to hotel to sort out everything, we went outside to have chipsi mayai! Yummy but greasy!
Samir’s friends left us around 3:00am, and we stayed up to chat for a little bit, and waited for Sarah’s friend, Hassan, to come. Ahh he finally arrived, only he was plastered and throwing up. So Sarah and I chatted with him for a little bit, and I left them to take Hassan home. Ahhhh it was so late. I finally got to bed around 5am….
Christina and I woke up early to have breakfast so that we can head back to Moshi! We got back and Christina had a flight at 3pm so we had to pack her up, and she had to quickly interview me before she head to the airport. Sarah, Pricilla, and Payal came back a little bit later than us, but they got back and we had ice cream! We bid good byes, and Sarah and I went to town for more shopping and juice. Ahhh I am so sad.
I don’t want to leave! It was a slow day, and I watched a little bit of TV at night. I also developed some kind of infection, so late at night, I went to the local doctor to get it checked out. It was painful! They cleaned it out and checked me for malaria. Thew, I didn’t have malaria. But the infection wasn’t too good. I just gotta wait to go to MIT Medical.
I couldn’t believe that I was leaving
