Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another thing that struck us on our trip to Tanzania/Zanzibar, is the fact that most of the people we had contact with were earning the equivalent of $2 to $3. a day, max. $2 to $3 a day!! Try living off of that. We decided to consciously and generously tip, both to the specific people we felt were working hard to give us good services, but also put a larger amount in the general tip box that most all hotels have, which is equally distributed to all workers. What is a little to us is a lot to them. So when you travel east or south, share your wealth a little bit...tip!
