First place we lived in 1948.. Sorowaya?
« on: 12 July, 2012, 20:38 »
When we first arrived in Tanganyika, my father was based at a very small camp as part of the ground nut scheme,  which my memory tells me was called something like...Sorowaya, but I can find no trace of it. There were half a dozen or so whitewashed mud houses, a big generator but not much else.
Anyone any idea?
After that we were at Mpwapwa, I was only seven so don't remember too much. Mark Peters, a couple of years older than me was my best mate. I definitely remember a mad elephant (covered in poachers arrows) running amok among the houses until my dad and another guy shot it. I had the photos until my ex wife decided to burn them all!
