...Say What? Interesting tidbits that differentiate Tanzania and America -Oranges are green. -One road in Karatu is paved. All the rest are dirt and very uneven. -A meal at a local restaurant can be purchased for 1,000 Tanzanian shillings, or a little less than one dollar. -Gas (or petrol as they call it in Tanzania) costs more than six dollars per gallon. Few people have cars, besides the safari companies and wealthy townspeople. -Laundry machines are non-existent, refrigerators are rare and mosquito nets for beds are ubiquitous (to avoid malaria). -Hand soap is usually in the form of bars, paper towels are uncommon, and most soda is sold in glass bottles. -Tanzanians are much less wasteful than Americans. Masai tribes even make sandals out of old car tires.
