Soft Tanzanian Skies

A backdrop of small hills and soft blue sky behind Shinyanga

Previously living in a valley within Kenya's Great Rift Valley, I miss the mountains which surrounded us. We now live in a very flat area of Tanzania. However, I was thrilled to see some small hills behind the town as we entered Shinyanga on our shopping trip this week!

  1. What a wonderful open sky and an open road. So much to explore. Happy Sky Watch!

  2. I'm glad you found some hills under all that wonderful blue sky. Lovely photo, Jo.
    I didn't know about Shinyanga, but I looked up Mwanza on Google Maps today, because we're actually looking at safari ideas in Kenya and Tanzania. No plans, just looking, but thinking mid-November because everything depends on Dick's work schedule, of course.
    It's such a long, long way for weary old me to travel, though. Like going to Australia.

  3. Good photo! It certainly gives a sense of the spaciousness of the place. I would miss the hills/mountains, too.
    Happy Sky Watch Friday!

  4. Has a very volcano shape. Nice long views.

  5. I, too, love the sense of openness and what lovely blue skies! Great capture for the day, Jo! Hope you're feeling better and that you and Grant have a great weekend!


  6. It is different from your last place but you are sure to find interesting places to show us.

  7. Nice photo.

    Regards and best wishes

    Hope you're feeling better now!

    I was in Tanzania last week and my post this week at SkyWatch is from Ngorongoro!

  12. I really like this road shot and the hill in the distance. It is so green there!
