Rainy season

Tanzania has two rainy seasons – the short rains and the long rains.  In Dar es Salaam the long rains run between March and May.  This year, there’s been a proper rainy season, with plenty of heavy showers.  Being at sea level with a distinct lack of drainage, everything gets waterlogged very quickly, which makes for permanently muddy feet and shoes.

Here are a few snaps of my street:
