I'm going to write about the places where I like to go, the events that I never miss, the shopping that I can't resist.

Just a small apologize. This is not a touristic guide, neither a reviews website. It's a blog that I write just for fun. You'll never see votes in "little yellow stars", here. In other words, I give note that I might be not objective... or at least, not objective in the strict meaning of the term.

If you have any comment, amend, note that you want to send me... just drop me a mail :)

Karibu to Dar Es Salaam!

It's...
