I should mention that in Dar es Salaam people eat habanero-scotch bonnet like peppers when their green. They're a bit milder but still have that smokey-hot flavor
While Zimbabwe and most of Malawi were just finishing they're rainy season, we're in the heart of it here. April is the rainiest month in Dar es Salaam. It's hard to dry clothes. Global warming has come up twice in Prosper's house - once when Prosper said that the beaches used to be much wider at low tide than they are now, and Mr. Machary mentioned that the ice cap on top of Kilimanjaro is being much reduced.
Tomorrow I'll head to Moshi with Prosper and his dad. That's their home town, and the place I spent my first night in Afrika five years ago.
