After school today, I went into town. It only takes about fifteen minutes in a car, most of which time is spent in the area around the bus station. You could try and take another route, but that would mean all sorts of dirt tracks.
The road into town is actually really good. This has a lot to do with it being both a road to Dodoma and the main road to the Serengeti.
There are small shops and various types of business for most of a kilometre stretch of road. Nice tractor.
Almost all of these shops currently have red crosses spray painted on them. Not in any sense vandalism though. The council decided that the road wasn't wide enough, so they measured a distance from the centre of the road. Any buiding within this area would have to knocked down and moved the requisite distance away.
However, it's unfortunate the camera cannot properly illustrate the ten speedbumps crossed to reach town.
