Good Fences Good Travel

Two weeks ago, once driver Mohamed and I had dropped the cats off at Dr Sinare's PetCare House, Dar Es Salaam, we traveled back to my hotel. The cats would be taken to the airport en route to Johannesburg the next morning; I spent the night in Dar Es Salaam, and ultimately returned to Mwadui for the last time, the next day.

At a red light I spotted an interesting fence and gate, wound the window down and took a photo. No soon had I leaned back in my seat, when Mohamed wound the window up again. Uh-oh, so this was a dodgy part of the city?
An interesting bounding wall and gate surrounding a property in Dar es Salaam

A hundred meters further I snapped these ladies selling food against the backdrop of the high concrete wall. I kept the window UP!
Nearer the hotel area, these beautiful homes nestled behind fences trailing with bougainvillea and secured with strong looking gates
This ornate wall caught my eye too

I'm linking my post to Good Fences Thursday here


  1. Great images, even through the window.


  2. Hello Jo, wonderful series of fence shots.. The last one is my favorite.. I you are settling in well and are happy.. Have a great weekend!

  3. The last fence looks so exotic to my eyes. I like it very much.

  4. i love drive by shooting and glad you had a driver to keep you safe and warn you about the windows down. i love that wall at the end.
