The sleeping capital of Tanzania. Set up in central Tanzania to make it easy for people to travel there but it never worked out. The parliament is still there and that's probably the only reason for government people to go there.

For the rest Dodoma is quite a nice town but nothing like a capital. Bram and me followed the trend in taking cheap guesthouses because I paid in: Kigoma 6.000 Tsh, Tabora 4.000 Tsh and now Dodoma 3.500 Tsh (7.000 for a twin room), not bad!

First night we walked around a bit, had some food and a few drinks and ended up in the Master Pub where there was live music. Next day booked a bus ticket and met 2 other Dutch guys; Timo and Tom. In the afternoon Bram bought himself a new Egypt t-shirt while I was playing draughts with some guys in the street (won 1 lost 2 games). Also some pool was played on a very funny table where you had to stand outside the bar to play the balls from the left side of the table hahaha…

Saturday night meant PARTY night and these 4 Mzungu’s went after Master Pub to Maisha Club and danced the night away on the booming hiphop and dance music. A very cool club and according to me one of the best I have seen in Africa! Clubbing until 5 in the morning and my bus left at 6.30 am so washed my face and packed my bag to go (a bit) drunk on the bus. That’s a while ago that this happened to me but it is also part of traveling!

Practical stuff

-          If possible go to Dodoma in the weekend and check out Maisha Club (10.000 Tsh entrance). It is a cool place and you will enjoy!
