Arrival into Tanzania was blessed with a helpful taxi driver who took us from Dar es Saalam to the local daladala stop so we could continue our journey to the Baobab Home in Bagamoyo. In the taxi the driver’s first words were ” Tanzania is a very peaceful place”. Rest assured we both felt a tad nervous when he wedged us tightly into our seats on the bus (daladala) by stuffing our bags on top of us and using them to tuck us in saying “be careful, be very very careful” as he exited and walked off.
Having eased us into our trip we did feel a tad vulnerable along the way. This feeling subsided a bit when an old blind man and a young couple with a new born jumped on.
