Four wheels, three wheels, no wheels

From my balcony in Moshi, Tanzania, I look down on a busy street. Traffic here follows the British custom; one drives on the left-hand side of the road. It sounds simple enough, but it can surprise you if you’re not careful. I check both ways before stepping into a street.

The three wheeled auto rickshaw are everywhere. These are known locally as a bajaji or a tuk-tuk and may be hired as a taxi for a very small price. It is amazing to see how much stuff can be packed in these overgrown (and underpowered) motorcycles.

Of course, “bus 11,” or your own two legs are the most dependable form of transport in the city.

When it comes to overseas travel, I play in Africa but work in Israel-Palestine.

If you are a pastor, church leader, or educator who is interested in leading a trip to the lands of the Bible, let me hear from you. I partner with faith-based groups to craft and deliver outdoor academic experiences. Leaders receive the same perks that other agencies offer, at competitive prices, and without the self-serving interests that often derail pilgrim priorities.
