Journal Entry:
In the morning Amy went downstairs and bought bus tickets while I finished up packing. Our timming was great an we were able to get a ride to the bus - a good thing since the bus didn't leave from the central station as I has assumed! It was a gray rainy day - not a bad day to spend on the bus if you had to. It was a very long ride though. Finally in Dar nearly ten hours after leaving Arusha. Checked the bus schedule to Iringa and made reservations for tomorrow afternoon's two o'clock bus. Caught a taxi to the Safari Inn, the same hotel we'd stayed at before, only to find it full. We walked next door to the Jambo Inn to find the same thing. Finally down the street we found a dark dingy hotel that had rooms available. Actually the room is nice - basic but clean and with a balcony - at half the price! Walked around the corner to a restaurant an had a pretty good dinner (Indian again - but nothing as nice as "Big Bite").
