2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 19,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Uyui: Despite the distance some of Tanga Streets resemble Tabora

Tanga

For those who have visited the two Regions, there are some similarities in some of areas. We are not and definitely will not be history teachers, but we have learned some few. Both are historical towns down the lane since and even beyond Germany’s epoch, more precisely on the arrivals of Arabs.  Residents of Tabora and Tanga were used to traveling using Railways, but now its Tabora that still dominated by such kind of transport. Uyui found one street in Tanga to resemble some of the streets in Tabora. We are still finding out the connection between the two towns that distant apart.

Kwa wale waliotembelea mikoa hii miwili wataona kuna mfanano wa baadhi ya mambo. Sisi sio na kwa vyovyote hatutakuwa waalimu wa historia, lakini tumejifunza vitu vichache katika hili. Miji yote hii ni ya kihistoria na unaweza kuiangalia kuanzia enzi za Wajerumani na hata wakati wa ujio wa Waarabu. Wakazi wa Tabora na Tanga walizoea kusafiri kwa gari moshi (treni) lakini kwa sasa ni usafiri huo umebakia kuwa ni njia kuu kwa Tabora. Uyui imeona mtaa mmoja hapo kwenye picha ambao unafanana na baadhi ya mitaa ya Tabora na bado tunaendelea kuangalia uhusiano uliopo kati ya miji hii miwili ambayo imetanganishwa na umbali mrefu zaidi.

Uyui: Picha ya Ndege ya iliyopigwa Tabora Miaka 1950

Vickers Viscount Demonstrator G-AMAV Picha hii ilichukuliwa kati Mwezi Machi 1955 na Juni 1957 Mkoani Tabora. Ni picha ya Ndege aina ya Vickers Viscount Demonstrator G- AMAV. Inaonekana ilikuwa katika ziara ya mauzo kutoka Uingereza kwenda Rhodesia ya kusini (ambayo sasa Zimbabwe) na Afrika Kusini) – kumbuka hasa katika picha ya juu kuwa mafuta ya kwenye mapipa haikuwa aghalabu kupatikana Tabora kama inavyooneka.

Picha hizi zilipigwa na Baba wa Colin ambaye ni Marehemu Ken Crossley , aliyekuwa Air Traffic Mdhibiti ( ATCO ) walioajiriwa na Mkurugenzi wa Civil Aviation Afrika Mashariki Services ambaye alikuwa kuwajibika kwa masuala yote ya anga katika Afrika Mashariki kutoka miaka ya 1940 kwa wakati mwingine katika miaka ya 1970 . Yeye alikuwa kikazi katika uwanja wa ndege mpya wa jijini Dar es Salaam kuanzia Novemba 1954 Machi 1955 wakati alipohamishiwa kikazi Tabora na kukaa huko hadi Machi 1957 na tena kutoka huko Machi 1958 na Septemba 1958 wakati alipohamia Zanzibar ambako alikaa hadi Aprili 1960.

Habari hizi ni kwa hisani ya Colin M Crossley – Uingereza

Uyui tunamshukuru sana Colin kwa kutupatia picha na maelezo hayo.
