All that was fixed a couple of days ago when Anne organised 2 nights away at a new lodge near to Arusha. We stayed at Dashir Lodge, being built by a wonderful Canadian couple, Darrel and Shirley Peters. They have done a wonderful job in making a very comfortable and beautiful place to stay and relax. There are views from the front door of Mt. Kilimanjaro (when it is not hiding behind the clouds) and then off the the left Mt Meru looms - a great location.
Have a look at their web site at: http://www.dashirlodge.com/
So, we are back refreshed and ready to go.
