To get to where we were working in Tanzania, we flew to Zurich, then on to Dar es Salaam, where we then took a bus 15 hours deep into the Tanzanian interior, near the Malawi border.
When we finally arrived there, we had to visit the district commissioner of Kyela to get her permission to do our work in her area. The office is off of a series of unpaved dirt roads, which we reached via 4x4.
While waiting for the commissioner to see us, I looked at the newspapers on a table outside the office. They were all written in Swahili, so I couldn't understand the words, but on the front cover of one of them was a picture of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
