Over the last four weeks two drinks in particular have punctuated Dan's and my journey throughout Tanzania, providing us with well-deserved refreshment after long days on the road. The first is the omnipresent Tusker Lager. Reputably named after an elephant that killed one of its founders, Tusker holds the honour of being East Africa's first beer. The second is the quintessentially English G&T – the only drink to have as you watch the sunset over the African veld. (Yes, sadly, I have succumbed to the colonial gaze – hopefully it will wear off soon. Mind you, tonic water is said to be great for malaria prevention; the Gin, of course, is an added bonus!) Bottoms up!
