West Africa/East Africa

Downtown in Arusha, Marcello’s new home

Cronies seem to be showing up all over the Mother Continent. It was when she went off to see the Teranga Lions thrash the hapless national team of Tanzania in an African Cup of Nations qualifier that I realized I had not done enough to plug Senegal Stories, the blog of my friend and former TIME colleague Jessica Reaves. The intrepid Jessica is a native of Pittsburgh, but she’s lately decamped to Dakar to write about AIDS treatment programs — and also to share with us her adventures in a city in which I’ve only ever touched down to refuel without being allowed off the plane. So it’s a vicarious thing, especially the fish stew, and that nutter Dioufy banging ’em in against the poor Tanzanians.

But the Tanzanians, of course, at least have the consolation of having in their midst the wonderful Marcello Mongardi, whose own blog Safi Kabisa has just appeared on my radar. Marcello, a teacher formerly of East Village and Brooklyn locales (but originally Italian-Australian) recently moved to Arusha to teach. His site is a marvelous collection of photographs, anecdotes, gardening and eating tips, and, of course, keen observations on the goings on at the Cricket World Cup. Living proof that the “information superhighway” has reached rural Tanzania!

Check out both, you’ll be glad you did

  1. Always looking for something new! I spend way too much time on the internet, mostly looking at weather patterns, researching the stock market, looking for bargains and stuff like that. On one of the forums that I visit, I found a system and some software that can change things up quite a bit. It’s a simple way to make money online. You don’t need a website or really any previous experience. You don’t have to worry about trying to figure out a complicated software because the instructions are very easy to follow. Anyway, I am really glad that I found it and that’s why I wanted to share it with you. You can even get it at a discount price by following these instructions. When you go to the sales page listed below, don’t order from that page. Instead, just close the window and it will try to make you stay for a different offer. I think is does that 1 or 2 times before you get to the page that offers the discount! (Just keep hitting ‘cancel’ until you get the discount page). Here is how the package is advertised: The Instant Cash Empire money making system is for people who are looking for an easier way to make money online. Get push button cash sites in just 2 minutes! It not only generates a network of websites for you, but it will also give your network of sites ALL the traffic they could possibly ever need. The software will get your newly created, push button cash websites free traffic. When you join, you will receive instant access to an automated software that will create your very own “instant cash empire” web network of sites working for you 24/7 to generate cash even while you sleep. With Instant Cash Empire you do not need to master every technical skill before you are able to see REAL results. So if you are looking for a way to make money online and you are all for automation, or you just don’t want to have to create your money websites yourself, or you don’t want to take the time or spend the money to get traffic to your websites, you might want to check out the Instant Cash Empire push button method for generating income.

    I do agree with all the concepts you’ve introduced to your post.
    They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief
    for starters. May you please prolong them a little from next time?
    Thank you for the post.
