Pilikapilika is a great Swahili word, meaning something like ‘hustle and bustle’.
Last week I enjoyed a trip to Dar es Salaam for our organisation’s Uganda-Tanzania branch conference and retreat.
There was time for rest:
There was also a lot of hustle and bustle, particularly when travelling:
We returned via Nairobi to pick up supplies for ourselves and colleagues.
I enjoyed perusing some of the shops, seeing what can be found in a big city.
It was rather bewildering – I never expected books and tea to cause me culture shock!
All in all, I really enjoyed catching up with friends and meeting new colleagues, the pilikapilika was worth it, but I am pleased to return to peaceful Musoma!
