Miss Geita

Rubondo Island is the least visited park in Tanzania. Most visitors who come here enjoy the pleasure of having the place to themselves, but they tend to stay for only 3 days or so. They also tend to be people who live locally, for example in Mwanza, Geita or Bukoba. Last week we had the pleasure of Miss Geita who came here before heading off to the regional finals in the hope of winning the coveted seat of Miss Tanzania.

I asked her about the prize she received for winning Miss Geita, but apprently there was none. Although she was going to appear on local television, and had taken a film crew along with her to the island.

Well I wish her all the best

About Nadejda Josephine

I am currently studying for a doctorate in Anthropology at University College London. My fieldwork takes place on Rubondo Island, Lake Victoria in Tanzania. The research looks at the nesting patterns and nest architecture in the Rubondo chimpanzees. I began the work in April 2012 and will remain on the island until at least October 2013. I write this blog so as not to forget this wonderful island and the random events which occur throughout my fieldwork.
