In the summer of 2006, I packed
my bags for Tanzania to do research for my master's thesis on
the country's fair trade tea estates. Working with a nonprofit
called TechnoServe, which sponsored my project, I learned a tremendous
amount about fair trade, tea, Tanzanian life and
much more. I also managed to get out and about to climb Kilimanjaro,
spar with some local boxers, and hang out with some real characters,
experiences I write about in the stories below. Enjoy!
