|Common sight on these roads|
Anyway, back to our trip to Arusha - we got to the city and got stuck in traffic, I felt at home, haha! It took us about 30 minutes to get a few miles, so it was reminiscent of Southern California.
Once in the city center, we stopped for lunch, passing both the McDonald's and Starbucks copycat stores.
|"Stiggbucks Coffee" - hmm sounds familiar...|
After a great Italian lunch (what a treat!), we headed to the Cultural Heritage Museum in Arusha. This is a new museum that displays centuries of Tanzanian history, as well as new artists' works. Tons of great sculptures, paintings, photographs were displayed all over.
|Wooden soldier men from the 19th cent|
The only difference between this place and an American museum is that ALL of the works, historical or not, are for sale. That was a little surprising!
