A day in Moshi

This morning most of us were awakened by the special call to prayer for Ramadan, which was broadcast over a loudspeaker from 3:00 AM until 4:00 AM...given our existing jetlag, many of us never fell back to sleep. 

There's nothing like brisk exercise to start resetting the biological clock, though, so we went for a walk through Rau Forest, some of the last remaining lowland tropical forest surrounding Kilimanjaro. We were fortunate to spot Colobus and blue monkeys.

As well as get a taste of rural agricultural life:




We spent the afternoon visiting some local markets in Moshi not far from our hotel:

Now we're off to dinner, hopefully longer and sounder sleep for all tonight!
