First day of school... the girls

We had a very early start this morning with two nervous/excited girls getting up at 5am - it is their first day of school in Tanzania.
School begins for them at 8.10am, and we drove them there today.
In the future a school bus will collect them from our place around 7am each morning, and drop them home around 4.30pm. A long day!
Below are some scenes from the car window as we drove.
It is a 30 minute drive out to the school from our place.

Arriving at school.
We didn't take any photos of them in the school yard as that would be embarrassing.

And driving back toward Arusha.
Mt Meru as always a magnificent back drop and past the airport (not the international one, just the small Arusha airport that caters for internal flights).


  1. They look lovely and I hope it was a great day!

  2. An exciting day! So good to see the countryside where you are... reminds me a little of Fiji!

  3. Wow that's a very early start for them. What an amazing road to school, looks so quiet and peaceful.

    1. Peaceful at that early hour. Busy later on.

  4. How gorgeous do they look?! Can't wait to hear how it all went.

  5. Aren't they gorgeous girls! : ) I hope they can make some new friends quickly and feel like they fit in. xx

  6. Hope they had a good start to their new school! Amazed at your ability to contain yourself and not take photo's in the playground, obviously the girls were very adamant.

  7. hope they had a good day, thinking of them xo
