Going to Tanzania had been a childhood dream of mine and was soon to be realised in the summer of 1998 Now standing at the airport I am not only excited but also afraid of what to come I had the image you would find in any travel brochure and in my mind I knew it was false We boarded the plane and left the runway at 745 We arrived in Brussels one hour later to transfer to a plane which would touch down in Rwanda and take us safely to our final destination of Nairobi in Kenya Nairobi was my first experience of Africa a huge city with a huge population We left the hotel at 1010am and just past the door a small child holding out the hand greeted me The child followed me across the road to the market we were going to visit Shortly after entering the market I was swamped by determined stall owners Walking the streets was incredibly tiring because there was never a moments piece but I enjoyed it all the same Arusha was the first place in Tanzania and the second major place visited It was different yet the poverty and the insistence of the people were very similar to that of Nairobi We spent our first day shopping but anything we bought we knew we would have to carry for the rest of the trip What you find as a tourist is that you will be told prices up to ten times the real value and you will have to bargain hard to get a good priceWe visited our first project the Heifer project where we needed to decide whether our money was being well spent and going to a good cause We were welcomed with the local choir and a speech from the village head After visiting some families that had been helped by the project we decided our money should continue helping the project
