1.5.17 -- Day 17

Today’s photo follows in the footsteps of yesterday’s photo. Today I went on another excursion with my language partners to interview some fruit and vegetable vendors and to visit a local agricultural organization. It was very interesting to see how the responses of the vendors were very similar to each other unlike the responses of the farmers which varied significantly. My photo is of a demonstration plot at the agricultural organization that I visited. The plants pictured are all different types of spinach. It was really neat to see my language partners’ faces when they found out that spinach or leafy greens could be purple. Today was the first day that I felt like my partners actually learned something too which was very exciting. These visits have made me excited for my full-time internship, which hopefully starts on Monday, at a different agricultural organization! I can’t wait to discuss my findings with my new colleagues and learn more about agriculture in Tanzania.
