What is an Arusha anyway????

Posted on: June 6, 2011

Arusha is where I will be volunteering! But more importantly, according to Wikipedia Arusha is:

  • city in northern Tanzania- capital of its region (Arusha region)  has a population of 1,288,088
  • situated below Mount Meru- close to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge etc…
  • the de-facto capital of East Africa
  • hosted the ICTRs since 1994 (as a student, this excites me)
  • founded by German colonialists when the territory was part of “German East Africa”
  • named after the coal tribe “Wa-Arusha”
