End of our last school holidays in Tanzania...

On Saturday we headed out to Maji Moto for a picnic and a swim with the Boyes.
It was a great way to end the school holidays (for us that is - the girls still have another week of slothfulness).
The water is so blue.
The fish that nibble on you a little disconcerting.

 small one of me to prove I did actually go in - this was after I slipped over in the mud whilst trying to make a graceful entry into the water

There were a group of Americans who kept us all amused for a long time by stringing hammocks across the waterhole and then attempting to get into them.
Extreme chilling.

Below are a few pictures from the drive back to the main road.
