A Zebra's Dream

4 years ago

The Zebra is a chocolate-addicted, blogloving, sometimes neurotic, belgian former working mum of two sweet little daughters! On the 13th of January 2014 we said our goodbyes in Brussels Airport and 14 hours later we landed in Dar Es Salaam: our new home for the coming three years. What should I expect of life in Tanzania? Will we like it? How will our kids do? One thing is sure, it will be an adventures experience that we won?t forget soon!
