The trip home to Maun

Location: Dar Es Salaam to Mbeya, Tanzania

Mel and I finished our trip north, and started the trek home from Dar Es Salaam. Who knew it would take soooo long!

This is the sign that was at the back of the train, there was no window. The floor in this car should have also had danger signs on it, as there were holes in it too! Maybe that's where the roaches came in!

The Tazara train moving through the hills of Tanzania.

FINALLY! 75 hours on the train, but we made it to Kapiri Mposhi. Unfortunately we were only halfway home!

Mel and I being silly. I don't know why we didn't do it when the train was stopped...my hair would have been a little smaller that's for sure!

After the bus to Livingstone, it was the back of a pickup halfway to the border...

After spending a night on a mini bus in the bus station, then got on a bigger bus to head to Livingstone. 1 hour later, we ran into this.

We made it...very grubby, and sweaty, but we made it!

Judy, this one is for you. This is the cotton truck that we hitched a ride on to the border of Zambia and Botswana...it looks safe doesn't it?

Now if only we could get in the gate to our house...
