  1. A small detail, but the Swahili word is spelled “pole” rather than “poley” (Swahili also uses the Roman alphabet). The Swahili proverb “pole pole ndio mwendo” means something like “slow and steady is the way to go.”

  2. Congratulations to the team, being a BU alumni, a Tanzanian and a mountain climber myself, I am delighted for what the team did and for the challenge they undertook. Hongera sana
