After 391km coming from Morogoro via Chalince we climed up the Usambara mountains at Mombo at sunset. We were very lucky they still had two rooms left at the Tumaini guesthouse, one for Deo and one for us. At the supper we could see the General Secretary and plan the next day.
We went up to his house the next morning, on Saturday. It had been a school in former times, and at the toilette we had installed the booster for Lushoto.
It did not work any more because a strong muslim station interfered with its reception. We tried to attenuate the incoming signal until it worked again. We also had to replace the old memory battery for the receiver. We hope we get a satellite channel soon to overcome the interference problem on the Kenian side soon.
At lunch hours we left Lushoto and arrived back home in Moshi after 272km at six in the evening.
