Q Hi, I just read your reviews and I have to say, that I’m very impressed. I’m currently looking for a good place to stay in Tanzania and this hospital sounds pretty good. Actually it almost sounds to “European” compared to some other reviews. While honestly concerning to apply at the Mbeya hospital I’d like to ask you some more questions. First of all were you be able to do as much as you were confident of doing on a patient or did you just have a position as an observer? And how did you manage the language barrier? Could anybody translate Swahili into English for you or was it impossible to communicate with the patient and take a history e.g.? To wrap it up, it would be great if you could tell me more about your accommodation. I assume you had electricity and running ware supply? And how did you like the surrounding area? Would it be easily possible to go on some trips to explore the country? Thank you very very much for your response. If possible it would be awesome if you could also post some contact info or contact persons of whom I could get more information from All the best, cheers Mo
