I am right now having my hair cut with a box cutter. Should give time for updates…

After one month of engineering and Kiswahili training near Arusha (more specifically at MS-TCDC just by Usa River) we (Ashley Reid, KJ Stime and myself) arrived the city of Moshi (which I recently find out translates into “smoke”).

During our stay here we will work at two hospitals: Marwenzi hospital, which is located in the centre of Moshi town and KCMC, which is located at the edge of the city.
