Dar es Salaam, My City

Dar es Salaam (Peace of Haven) is the commercial city of Tanzania.
The weather is usually warm to hot. Temperatures peaks in January - February averaging 30'c during the day.
It is one of the fast-growing city in Africa, but a lot are yet to be done.

Julius Nyerere international airport is within the city which soon will be under expansion project due to increased air traffic.

New National stadium ( Uwanja wa Taifa) is among the most beatiful stadium in Africa with a capacity of 60,000


It has beatiful beaches with white sands especially at Kigamboni area.
Whenever I land at Dar, I usually feel a tricle of happiness in my heart, however, it hot outer there.
I like the weather there in June - July because it is a bit cool, at night it may be a little chill!

I do like your photos. Most of alll It looks warm. I would like to transport to warm climate, but having been raised in Nebraska I would miss the change in seasons. Please come back to visit.

Thank you for the translation of the city's name, did not know that before.
Agree with you that arriving in ones town makes the heart skip a couple of beats, written from one who lives 3,000 miles away from it.
Please have a nice Friday.

Dar kama Nairobi kinachosikitisha ni kwamba ukisikiliza watu kila sehemu utaambiwa kuna majambazi au aina ya vibaka. Unaweza usitembee kokote kwa kuogopa kudhurika.:-(

The heat of your country are not used to and I hardly could get used to, I like the mild temperatures, although now in Europe and in Italy it's very cold, I wish you and your city the best possible development

Happy new year,
