Matipwilli, Tanzania: Our job is done!

Posted in Tanzania on January 30, 2012

Welcome to the new Tanzania kitchen range. This tough outdoor kitchen is built to withstand searing heat inside and outside it’s modern structure. It’s open air design and military grade cooker can accommodate up to 400 people.... Joking aside, there’s still a bit of tidying up to do but our job is done! School dinners won’t ever be the same again. I wonder what the first thing they’ll cook will be? Shame we won’t be here to line up with the other students to find out. It’s really difficult to put into words how I feel about being a part of this project. To build something that a community really needs, with the community, in a foreign country, learning to communicate, work and laugh along side each other has been an amazing experience. For now maybe it’s best just to say I’ve got the biggest smile on my face and a cold beer in my hand. Now where’s that beach..............
