Very quick update… I AM GOING TO THE SERENGETI… TOMORROW MORNING.
AHHHHH. This is my first trip to another city since coming to Tanzania, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve heard only the best things about this experience and I can’t wait to see the lions, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and hopefully cheetahs and hippos up close! One of my best friends who visited Tanzania a few years ago, also told me that the stars from the Serengeti are literally OUT OF THIS WORLD SO I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE IT ALL FOR MYSELF.
Also this past week has been crazy busy, I did a bunch of guest lectures at SAUT university in front of some really BIG classes. Honestly before this trip, I didn’t know if I had it in me to speak to such a large group of people, but I actually found that it was easier for me to speak to classes of 400-500 students compared to smaller ones of 100-200 people. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the best photos/videos of me doing the actual lecture, but possibly next week I’ll get the chance to do some more, and I’ll make sure to get some photos so you can see the university lecture halls, and the many many students that fill the lecture rooms!
I’m also very happy I got the chance to work on my public speaking skills as it’s something I’ve always wanted to get better at. After the lectures, a bunch of students asked me questions in-person and also over email, and I had so much fun answering their questions. Part of me wonders if I could be a professor or continue to be a guest lecturer sometime in the future… WHO KNOWS?!?!
Anyways it is time for me to finish packing and then get a good night’s sleep as we have an early start tomorrow morning.
Usiku Mwema! And see you next week with new updates and hopefully more photos 🙂
