December 18th, 2010'd only come to Tanzania if you love roughing it out, watching what water you drink, closing your mouth while you shower, perfecting your giant-insect-killing skills, and trying to avoid being diseased by flushing your system with countless medications! I hate these holidays…

The #1 thing to hate - Mosquito bites on top of a sunburn. And swahili men telling me they love me. Tokah! I could go on … bathing with water out of a bucket filled with god knows what, rocks in the rice, holes in the mosquito nets (if there even is one), warm everything (soda, beer, water, touts trying to charge me 3x the local price, no toilet paper and no water (doesn't anyone have a sense of personal hygiene?), dalla dallas (the dirtiest, hottest, most crowded buses in the world with no respect for personal space, and it's 100degrees - please roll down the damn window!), and corrupt police always trying to get a bribe. How about trying to be polite to someone who sits down next to you and then they expect you to buy their beer bc your white. Also, NO ONE has any manners. Please and Thank you do not exist there nor does respect for women. Trying to walk down the 'street' is like playing a game of frogger and perhaps more dangerous than anything else is walking and not tripping or getting hit by a car. DON'T GO TO TZ - try the Bahamas instead.

The worst thing about Tanzania is the country's ignorance of the outside world, particularly on the subject of language. I am technically a Tanzanian citizen, but I didn't grow up in the country and so I am not fluent in swahili. I get so much shit for this day in day out. I keep getting called Mzungu (even though I'm black african) and even though I can just about hold a basic conversation, people act like I'm the dumbest person in the world. I wish they were more like kenyans. I'm not even joking here, I have lived in different communities and personally I've been treated the worst by my own people. No…it's not like every black person in the world can speak swahili, it's just people who grew up in bongo. I get laughed at, ridiculed and humiliated at work and during outings. You all are lucky you're just visiting, I'm stuck in this mess of a country. I'm just going to work hard and try to find a way out of here.

Don't forget the open corruption this place openly allows! Police officers openly steals your money via threats or violent behavior. Swahili's blame the "mozungu" (white people) for the poverty and poor circumstances.

Then there's the witchcraft. They actually believe that when they capture, kill and dismember body parts from the albino people, it will grant them a form of luck or power…

Are you serious!?

Nothing more than an uneducated, power hungry folk, and does not have the intention to widen they're knowledge for the greater good or beneficial terms.
This nation is truly doomed due to it's ignorance and lazy behavior, growth is unforeseen in the future of the Swahili people, unless aid and assistance from the outside world is provided.

The descent folk who are in Tanzania DO NOT DESERVE the arrogance from their politicians, but then again, they are too lazy to do anything about it.
