So I did what I do best when I get to any African city, I buy fabric and make pretty dresses 🙂 Ngara is so small, most of the fabric stands just sell the same designs, but I was able to buy some unique pieces when I went to Arusha last month so I am happy again!

I went to my co workers tailor on Saturday and she took my measurements and I realized I have definitely  gained weight while living here. At least 7 pounds. Sigh, such is life. I told my Tanzanian boss that I was getting fat, she said “OHHH that is so good! You must eat more!”

African women sure know how to make you feel better about your expanding hips and waist line. Nonetheless I’ve started jogging in the mornings so hopefully that will help.

The struggle is real.
