Back in July I wrote about a trip I was going to take to Tanzania (http://timkwrites.weebly.com/blog/we-cannot-find-kidamali-tanzania-google-maps.) The trip seemed far away, not only in distance, but in time as well. While the distance hasn’t changed, time is getting short. I’ll be leaving in a week. I’m getting ready to go; gathering supplies and figuring out what to pack.
There have been a few meetings of the group that is going, so I have some more information about the trip. We’ll be staying in the Lutheran Center in Iringa, Tanzania most nights. I’ll be able to access the internet from there, so I will be able to post updates from Tanzania. Although, I’m sure my posts will probably be more travelogue postings of what we did and where we went. I’ll probably need some time to process, so there will be posts after I return as well.
I’ll be worshipping at Shepherd of the Hills’ companion congregation of Kidamali on our first Sunday. Google maps told me they couldn’t find Kidamali. I did find it with an internet search and heard some more information about the location at our last meeting. It sits on the rim of the Great Rift Valley.
I am looking forward to this trip. Like the old theme song from the TV show Cheers says, “taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot.” With the internet, I won’t be totally out of touch, but at least I’ll miss a lot of political ads.
