Coca-Cola Everywhere, But Not a Drop to Drink
September 21, 2013 - Zanzibar, Tanzania
“Never trust a journey from Zanzibar until you are on the boat or the airplane,” Coach Chui told the team last Friday in Kiswahili. “We leave for Bongo tomorrow, God willing.” With these wise words, we began our week-long trip to the Copa Coca-Cola Tournament on the mainland of Tanzania. In his book, Fear in Bongoland, Marc Summers writes “Bongoland is a worthy nickname for one of Africa's fastest-growing cities. The city's real name, Dar es Salaam, means 'Haven of Peace' in...

Veils, Cleats, and Other Attire in Zanzibar
September 5, 2013 - Zanzibar, Tanzania
We've launched our Kickstarter! A generous grant from Megan's graduate institution has covered the majority of our expenses, but we're fundraising for the odds and ends that the grant won't cover. Thank you so much to those who have contributed, not only with funds, but with kind words, long-distance hugs, and constructive feedback. We are sincerely touched by the support and encouragement we have received from our friends and family in the first 24 hours of its launch. In the wake of the...

The Cool Waves of Coconut FM
September 3, 2013 - Zanzibar, Tanzania
It is impossible to believe that we stepped off the ferry and onto this island just over one week ago. I feel so comfortable here that I might well have graced this island in previous lifetimes. Already, I'm giving directions to tourists, on a first-name basis with the convenience store clerks in our neighborhood, and can participate so flawlessly in the Kiswahili salutatory call-and-response that several people have asked with surprise, "You're speaking the Kiswahili?" No, you just happened...

Karibu Zanzibar (Welcome to Zanzibar)!
August 25, 2013 - Zanzibar, Tanzania
When I arranged to have the taxi driver pick me up at 2:30 a.m., I didn't realize that getting through passport control in Tanzania would be like playing the lottery. Here's how you play: First, stand in what you think is a very loose line for visas for about twenty minutes. When you notice that nobody else is still holding their passports and visa applications, make inquiries to the first English-speaking, non-passport-toting tourist you can find, and discover that you're the...

Seychelles and Shows!
April 9, 2010 - Zanzibar, Tanzania
It's been a while since I've posted a blog... things have been pretty busy!  We have been spending countless hours on the new show we are doing, so in my free time I sleep.  -Port Victoria, Seychelles- We got to Port Victoria at 5pm on April 1st.  I had bingo and then had to socialize for a while.  There was an organized crew outing to a club called "Tequila Boom" so we all hopped in shuttles and and went to this giant club.  It was nice to have all the crew get to get off the ship and...
