Oh, the new (to me) and exciting world of blogging… louder than swahili ties in with a drawing….

“Hamna changi!

I bet you’ve heard that line many times if you have been to Tanzania.

Lakini, I know where the Tanzanian small change is. On Kawawa Road, as on many other big roads in Dar es Salaam, it is a business to sell change to the conductors of the daladalas. A stack of coins might be 500 or 1000 Tanzanian shillings, which is sold for 500 and 1000 shillings + 50-100 shillings in extra charge. The conductors are then able to give change to the millions of passengers which every day pack themselves into a crowded daladala once, twice or thrice a day, every working day of the week.” 

Thanks for the inspirations Pernille!
