    Peace fam.

    I'm visiting my womans part of the Continent, but due to some unforeseen events we can't go to where we want to go. My whole reason for going there instead of to my homeland was to see her family, now that this is not an option we'll end up in Dar Es Salaam with a few aunts to visit but no village reunion :( Can't cancel the ticket either, too few days left.

    So, since I haven't been to TZ before (or the East for that matter) I'll check here if anyone has been/is from there and knows good things to do while there.

    I'm already thinking of heading over to Zanzibar to check for history-museums or see if I can find some Elders who can tell me about the Zanj and see if I can't chill with some of our people still there.

    Other than that, I'll be looking for scholars of IKS (Indigenous Knowledge Systems), and my woman probably would like to go to some serengeti/National Park or something (she grew up poor and wants to splurge. lol).

    Anything else worthwhile to be done? Any people to see, pan-afrikan/Afrikan-centred organizations to link up with? Im just dreading a boring 'vacation the beach' scenario, and trying to avoid that.

    One,

    If you're still there in February, the island of Zanzibar is supposed to have a huge culture festival going on. Lots of music and other good things.
