Amisadai's News!

Kigoma! We went to this town on the edge of Lake Tanganyika for a holiday with our Grandma and Grandad. The best bit of the holiday was getting a boat on the Lake! The worst bit of the holiday was the long drive there! It took 2 days and it was a bumpy road!
While we were in Kigoma, we went to a hotel for lunch. We had a wonderful view of Lake Tanganyika, as you can see! I had a burger for lunch and a Novida, which is the new soda.
In Kigoma, they have two families of Zebra that wander around the town! They came round our banda, and they went down to the lake for a drink afterwards. We saw a tiny little baby, and its stripes were still brown! As we were there, the stripes were starting to fade.

Mummy hired a boat on the first day, and we had sooooo much fun! Here is a photo of granddad trying to get out of the boat and Louisa screaming! We took it in turns to push and pull it. Louisa DID NOT like at first, but after a while she started to have some fun, and tried to push me out of the boat!


This monkey was a cheeky one! While no one was on the porch he came and took our breakfast! There he is in the photo with OUR bread! He shared it out with his friends and they looked as if they were enjoying themselves! Luckily, he wasn't wise enough to take the whole loaf, he just took a half. We will be a lot more careful about not leaving food out now! 
I think they are playing Duck-Duck-Goose!
A cute little baby monkey!


While we  were there, we went to the Livingstone Museum in Ujiji. Louisa is holding hands with David Livingstone! We also saw a monument that was put there in rememberance of the mango tree where David Livingstone and Henry Stanley met. They had planted two other mango trees from seeds of the big one.

Last Saturday, we went to a big fair. I think that this coke shop is the coolest I've ever seen. I thought for a minute that the driver might sit in the bottle lid! At the craft fair they had a lot of medicine and lots of juicers there. I bought a little key chain with a purple rock on the end.
 
Here is Louisa again, having a fight with a lion (just like David Livingstone!)
He must not have wanted that antelope.
The lion's given up! Here Louisa and I are having a picture with him!
 
Now for some exciting news! On Sunday I am going to be baptised! We are going to Dar es Salaam on Friday night and early on Sunday morning at sunrise, Grandad and Uncle Huruma will baptise me in the Indian Ocean. I will tell you more about it when we get back!
