Recently I’ve noticed a few things, which would certainly have been classed in my “weird” category this time last year, that have become normal for me here in Tanzania.
When I open my curtains in the morning, I have to try to remember to do so with care, otherwise I may end up with someone landing on my head …
Geckos love to hide between the layers of my curtains! I mostly don’t mind them, and they help me by catching insects. However, I prefer it if they refrain from climbing on me.
I managed to catch this little guy who was hanging out on the inside of my mosquito net one evening:
Last weekend I visited the local second-hand market with a friend:
You can find some great things there, although I was pleased that I was with someone who knew her way around … it feels a little like you might end up in Narnia!
I also realised last week that there are some things that used to be normal, but now seem very strange …
Our short rainy season has started, and so the weather is a little cooler than normal (getting as cold as 19 degrees Celsius at night!).
