The book Vagabond in Africa by Javier Reverte has a great description of Dar es Salaam and learning to love it. I'm not sure if the book is available in English, but if you understand Spanish you should definitely get your hands on a copy!
I have just been told that I am to implement the new computer system for the Bank of Tanzania. It will take about a year and I will live there for a part of that.The bank is in Dar es Salaam, near the ocean, and I will stay at the Sheraton for the first few days / weeks.
I will probably try to rent either an apartment or a furnished villa (if possible) and will buy a Land Cruiser.
So. Does anyone have any information, advice, comments, jokes even?
I would appreciate all input.
Thanks patasarriba. I'll look that up.
Weird how your post is above mine though.
I think we're in different time zones, which screwed things up.
