Dar es Salaam

When I got this postcard, I had not realized it comes from Africa as people easily connect this continent with desert and poverty. However, the place shown looks really beautiful and prosperous, just like any other seaside resorts in Europe. It is Dat es Salaam, the largest and richest city of Tanzania. Situated on a natural harbour on the eastern coast of Africa, it serves as the economic centre of the country. The postcard shows some seaside landscapes along beaches where residents and tourists alike frequency visit. Many thanks to Jing for this great card and nice stamps franked! Considering Dar es Salaam is one of the safest large cities in East Africa, I just hope you enjoy the nice time there! :)
