I, like Burton, am taken with the sincerity and friendliness of Tanzania, then Tanganyika people. I see the deep spirituality resident here, but almost destroyed by the missionaries. It was so for Burton then and is for those that care to see it now.

As the sun rises the multi-million dollar estates that dot the mountain ridges around Ryan’s Bay stand in stark confirmation of the economic explosion that has and is occurring here in Mwanza.
