It depicts the adventures and life of the author and his wife, in their mid fifties, who left the comfort and security of their privileged Boston lifestyle to serve in Tanzania. The story depicts the beauty and one of Africas most peaceful and beautiful nations and the sharing of language, culture, and lifestyle of its gracious people. It shares in the sadness of the HIV-AIDS pandemic, poverty, the founding of the countrys second medical school, and our own misgivings of acquiring the skills of a new language, vocation and culture at that stage in our lives. It also shares the authors personal view of himself and the fulfilling nature of the work and faculty of Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre. In short, it is a brief journal of our adventures and love affair with one of the worlds most beautiful country and people despite the significant handicap of poverty and rampant disease.
