Dar es Salaam

Dar is pretty much like any major city you would come across anywhere in the world.  Lots of traffic, lots of people, and lots to do.  I'm a big fan of the club and music scene there and if you have a chance, youtube some music that comes out of Tanzania, specifically "bongo flava".  Oh ya, Dar is hot.  I mean hot and humid and this is the rainy/"cold" season.  I was cooking.

Some photos of Dar es Salaam.

  5. The control tower is not for ferries but for the port, owned and operated by tanzania port authorities (TPA).

  6. Thanks for the correction @control tower. Much appreciated.
