Tanzania – First impressions
We have been here in Mwanza for about ten days now and despite the obligatory mosquito bites we are settling in well. The house we are living in is huge and my children have been enjoying running around the house and climbing trees. The garden is lush with colourful bougainvillea trees and hibiscus flowers and to top it all off a family of about 12 monkeys regularly come to visit.
The street markets are amazing and I hope that when I get my confidence up, and a little bit of Swahili, I will venture in with my sketchbook and paints. Until then, I thought I would share my first few sketches of Tanzania; the view across Mwanza and Lake Victoria from Isamilo Lodge, a detailed sketch of one of the hibiscus flowers in my garden and a bottle of Serengeti beer.
