Scenes from the Road, Tanzania (March 22-23, 2008)

We spent the better part of two days driving from Lake Malawi over the border to Tanzania and east to Dar es Salaam. Both the scenery and the weather varied greatly over the two days, but all of it was beautiful:
Rice fields just over the Tanzanian border
Tea plantations as far as the eye can see Hillside farms with plenty of terraces
A cloudy mountain pass
A huge baobab tree on the side of the road. Legend has it that if you can fit your arms around the trunk of a baobab tree, you will have good fortune for life!
