In 2007, I visited Namanga, on the border between Tanzania and Kenya. I was there with students and Professor Bill Davis from Colorado College, on a Hemingway course. Visiting Namanga made sense. Hemingway and his party passed through here on December 20, 1933, on their way into what is today Tanzania.
Students got to meet the local people. Here is a student with women on the Kenyan side of the border.
Here is another student with women on the Kenyan side of the border.
On the Tanzanian side of the border, the students got to meet the local children as well.
I found being here unforgettable, knowing that Hemingway went down this very road, into the distance, beyond the mountain, towards Arusha.
