Day 43 – 18.5.2011 Kisolanza Old Farmhouse
Of course, we did not get up early, that was clear. After a last chat with Rita we take off at 9 o’clock at the Baobab Valley Camp. The mountains near Iringa cost time, we have 8 trucks in front of us. The goal Kitulo National Park would be too far and so we stop in Kisolanza Old Farm House. This place we know already from the 2009. Fortunately, the weather behind the mountains of Iringa is better. After all, we are over 1700 meters high.
At 2, we have set up our tent and there is plenty of time for internet and laundry, the usual stuff. In the early evening we finally bake an apple pie and for dinner, there is a vegetable stew with fresh vegetables from the street, the first time we have found again our beloved Garden Eggs, a vegetable that looks like eggs and tastes fantastic.
A huge Baboon Spider (?) scares us a little, it is amazing how such an animal can emerge from nowhere. 7-8 cm, it may have had at least.
