Here comes the sun and 2016 – Happy New Year

This New Year rather than counting down the minutes and seconds to midnight on New Year’s Eve and partying until the early hours, I woke up before dawn on New Year’s Day to catch the first glimpse of the sun rising in Tanzania in 2016.
In a glass-fronted house situated on the banks of Lake Victoria, about 50 minutes north of Mwanza, at Papa’s Bungalows and Restaurant, my alarm was set for 5.30am.
Sitting on my veranda, camera in one hand, book in the other, I waited for the sun. This was my view.
Happy New Year and all the best for 2016.

    Excellent celebration to capture the new dawn of a new year ! Happy 2016 to you all, as you continue to enjoy your African experience. For some reason (totally beyond me!), I wasn’t able to respond via the comment section of your blog….. Ann xx Date: Fri, 1 Jan 2016 18:11:16 +0000 To: ann.curran@hotmail.co.uk
