Good if wet trip to Mwanza today. Got plumbing supplies, got Karen a massage that helped her a lot, reloaded on food supplies from a store that caters to wazungu (non-Africans), ate at a really good Chinese place, got a new motorcycle tire, refilled our propane tank for our stove, got some good flashlight batteries (the local ones are good for about six hours and they leak), and got a bank statement from the big branch office there. Not bad, especially if you consider that I didn't have to go--it was Karen, John, and Shaban. I had to stay out of the sun and play video golf, read, and nap. Tough day for me.
