Sometime in the past two weeks I was just sitting there

...being serenaded by 150 schoolgirls.

...watching the FAB guests with Maryknoll Lay Missioners pound out artimesea. 

...watching the traditional dances of the Sukuma people at the Bujora Sukuma Museum. (I know people think this is an everyday thing in Africa-seeing traditional drummers and dancers- but I assure you, it is not! This is a special treat because of our visitors.)

*Sorry, I'm a little behind with posting these. These pictures are all from the when we had guests from MKLM. Just catching up.

I was just sitting a hotel lobby

where our guests of Maryknoll Lay Missioners are staying while they are here for 2 weeks. They arrived today from America very jet-lagged, so they are taking a much needed 2 hr rest while I (the trip coordinator) gets to chill too.

I'm just sitting here...

In TZ you find yourself rushing to something only end up just sitting waiting for things to happen. Or, even when things are happening you're still just kinda sitting there. So in honor of that, today I'm starting a new thing called "I'm just sitting here." And I'll post a picture of whatever I'm looking at.

I'm just sitting Uzima Center.

And here's one from the other day too.

I was just sitting there... as I tried to learn crocheting (poorly). These girls were really good!
