We then drove aways out to the Arusha Coffee Lodge. Geez, that place was swank. I felt like I wasn't in Africa but in some posh town. There was a store in this place which sells Tanzanite jewelry. From the sign that I briefly read, only the jewelry store Tiffany & Co. and stores in Tanzania sell this jewel; it looks pretty--nice and blue.
I commented to Herman how fancy et magnifique it was to buy coffee from the Arusha Coffee Lodge. Of course the package is nondescript-just a plastic bag-but I'm trusting that the beans inside are good. From the coffee lodge we back tracked and went to the Cultural Heritage Center. Phew, you could get almost anything there by way of African crafts. The beaded items were expensive, regrettably."
