August 2, 2012 - Dar in the News

On Tuesday, a BBC news article about Dar es Salaam was published. You can read it here. I think it is a pretty accurate picture of Dar right now, even though we haven't been here that long. In particular, Kristoffer has said he can feel the underlying political tension here because of government corruption and increasing gaps between the very small wealthy population and the rest of the very poor country. We have seen how that can turn out before, as mentioned in this article as well, when we were in Kenya for the election of 2007. Anyway...if you skim through the article it will give you a better "visual" of this place. For better or worse, at least it is interesting! LMW
