The first weekend our whole EWH group visited a coffee farm run by the Chaga tribe- a large ethnic group that inhabits the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. We helped make our own coffee from dried beans -YUM. Then we explored the Chaga caves. These are pretty amazing caves made by the Chaga people a long time ago ( took them over 50 years to make) to protect themselves when the Masai tribe attacked. The caves were very strategic with different structures such as holes for warriors to hide in if the Masai came down and hidden chimneys for their fires. (The picture to the right is the lunch they fed us that day- really good!)
This past weekend we went on a hike to the town of on the side of Mt. Meru. The view was beautiful in the upper farmlands- a whole different perspective on life in Tanzania compared to the city.
The weekend trips have been awesome and this weekend I will be going on a Safari!
