After the courtyard consult the night before, we round in the morning before setting out to for the 2 ½ hour ride to the capital city of Dodoma. The streets are lined with dukas doing a brisk business. After lunch we tour the University of Dodoma campus with one of our physician-hosts.
The cook from the hospital complex sends us to town with a shopping list: carrots, pineapple, peppers, watermelon, and fish. For ourselves, we buy fabric, coffee, spices, and cook spoons. On the bus ride back to Itigi, we stop and buy baskets being sold by the side of the road.
