Picture of the Week: Going nowhere slowly

I've now been in Tanzania just on a week travelling with Dan in tow south along the Tanzam Highway covering the Southern Safari Circuit as well as all the pit stops en route to the Malawian border. Yesterday when we stopped briefly to refuel in Iringa I spied two young men sitting atop of the skeletal remains of what was once a small four wheel drive and was inspired to take the above picture. After our driver spent the last couple of days hurtling a hundred-miles-an-hour along deeply, rutted dirt roads and overtaking trucks and lorries at break-neck speed around hairpin turns on mountain passes, I won't be at all surprised if this is how our snazzy little Rav4 hire car will look when we return to Dar es Salaam at the end of the week. Safari Njema! (Safe Travels!)

Sounds like fun, I always wanted to do a trip to Tanzania, you should give me pointers on the best way. I heard Dar is a great party town, nice and small with a few great watering holes.

All the best
