South Beach weekend

I’m not talkin’ Miami here. I spent a lovely two days on Mjimwema beach a few miles south of Dar. To get there, you ake a crowded ferry across Kurasini Creek. Everyone is in a rush to get on, before moving at about .5 knots across the 200-yard expanse of water. A ten minute taxi or daladala ride later, after passing through bucolic palm forests and coastal scrub, you arrive at a pristine beach. (To get the full effect of the ferry ride while looking at the pic below, listen to “Always On My Mind” by DaVille featuring Sean Paul, which was playing on a loop on the ferry. I’d link you, but sadly it seems to have been removed from the Internet.)
