Africa, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Around Dar: Uhuru Street

There is a Swahili saying that goes, “A woman can never be happy until she has 1,000 kangas.” I think they’re right. There are just SO MANY beautiful fabrics to choose from…
Cho and I tried practicing our kiswahili with the vendors. She got asked for her e-mail address/facebook two different times.
It was fun, and a must-visit for anyone traveling to Dar. I will never buy my kangas anywhere else, as they are half the price here without even haggling.
On a related note, each pattern on a kanga represents something that usually corresponds with the phrase printed on the kanga.
