Abandoned storefront, Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania

Mto wa Mbu is a village of about 18,000 residents in Tanzania. It is a diverse town, with people from 120 different tribes living and working there. This building was on a backstreet we walked on during our tour of part of the village. The design is typical of  many storefronts we saw while driving through both urban and rural areas of Kenya and Tanzania.

Washington, D.C. Monuments and Buildings

While I actually live just across the Potomac River from the US capital,  Washington, D.C. is where I take my visitors. There is so much to do see and most of it is free. These are a few of my favorite places.
