To the ends of the earth…and back!

Driving adventures

Over the past several days, Karatu and other neighboring areas received much rain. Unfortunately there were several fatalities due to the heavy rains.

Some vehicles, one of which was a large truck, was swept away by the flash floods, which picked up as the truck attempted crossing. Crews have been hard at work to fix the bridge which was destroyed by the rains.

As we head to Arusha for the night, Caroline and I passed several of the badly hot areas, some of which still carried remnants of the copious amount of water. Likewise, we drove through mid-covered Tarmac where the water had carried the ground.

In addition to the waters, we had some visits from roadside companions!

Never a dull moment!!
