New day new country! We woke up to pouring rain. It was raining, raining and raining non stop. Eventually the rain stopped for a few minutes and we quickly used the time to put together tent. We were in Mtwara town - the most southern east town in Tanzania, right at the beach. We went for a quick walk to the beach, because we didn't really see much where we came to last night as we were driving in the dark. There were still dark skies over the sea:
The difference from Mozambique was very noticable, the roads were much better and the beach very clean, not a piece of litter!
This is how huge the snails are in Tanzania! :)
We drove around the town and went to make car insurance papers in the city centre, that costed us 30 USD. We bought SIM card for internet here as well. The city looked great after dilapidated Mozambican towns we have been seeing for the last few weeks:
After we have been done all our things in Mtwara we headed North towards Dar Es Salaam. We had to get there to find out about our visas for Mozambique. We couldn't get double entry visas for Mozambique, so we had to apply for another one in Tanzania. The main road doesn't go very close to the beach, and if it does, it leads to the villages and back. The road was good tar road:
We passed the village called Lindi:
We were happy in our new country, the people are very polite and extremely welcoming! We were looking forward to our adventures in Tanzania!
