Swimming

Oliver has been riding his bike up past Freedom Lodge quite a bit during the last week. It is about 2km from our house.
Today all the kids rode up there with AB to go for a swim.
I went to enjoy the sunshine and a pineapple juice, and to read... although I didn't get to do much of that.

It costs 2,000 Tsh to swim there (about $1.50).


 
 
Although everyone was very hot and sweaty after riding to the lodge, they didn't stay in the water very long. It was freezing.
As Arusha is 1135 metres above sea level there isn't the really hot weather to warm the water, although it may become warmer over January and February. And there is often a nice breeze blowing that makes it feel cooler too.
