Dar es salaam women dating
I was born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa to Irish parents who worked in the British Colonial Services.Dad was a District Commissioner in various “stations” in Tanzania.I had plans to go to sports college in Limerick, but dad died suddenly in East Africa.Mum returned to Ireland and we both took secretarial jobs in Dublin.I travelled back to Tanzania by flying boat from Southampton every three years during school holidays to see my parents.
It is also seen as a women’s job to successfully carry children.
Initially I was educated by mum through correspondence courses sent from London.
I have memories of African wild life, safaris, paraffin lamps, the sound of crickets, and mosquito nets around my bed at night.
Everyday situations arise where my mind is screaming that I should be shown some respect, but I understand that I have chosen to be here and it is not my place to try and alter the cultures and traditions.
Standing up for what I believe in often makes me the ‘crazy white woman’—a title I accept if it means that I am not being tricked into paying inflated prices or buying into corruption.
