Dar es salaam where I live means heaven of peace
But to me she has proved as well to be a haven of peace.
A peaceful place for any peace-loving person or race.
Atleast selfishly from here seem faraway all warring feuds all bloody massacres.
For here we simply catch sea and fresh water fishes 
instead of getting caught up in goddamned skirmishes.
Oh and I live in a land of seven wonders and I stay in a mansion of seven windows 
Each of them overlooking a different view
Guys, seven wonders to be exact
but be ready here for both fiction and fact
For I present to you these seven wonders of this land
as if I could view 'em' all from where I stand.
Ah and though I've settled down trying to be content with Tanzania.
A major part of me will always belong to my beloved India.

Well, well my first window has a view of Mount Kilimanjaro
the highest mountain in all of Africa 
Rightfully named, the Roof of Africa.
The 2nd window overlooks 
Lake Tanganyika 
and fishermen with nets and hooks 
in the 2nd deepest and longest lake in the whole wide world.

And from my third window can be seen
the famed, fabled and very pretty 
Natural park known as Serengeti
Nature's celebrated celebrity.!
The 4rth window affords a view of the wide Ngorongoro Crater
Just as rich in wildlife
Throw some fish to the 'gator
even if it's such a ruthless predator.

The 5th one it overlooks
The great game reserve Mikumi by name
no less in fame
for a choicest variety of game.
As for the 6th window, from there you can see 
Lake Victoria too
 and I play peek-a-boo
with a marvelous maribou 
and cheerily say 'karibu'
from the largest lake in all Africa.

The seventh, the last window gives me a view
of the dry lush gold-green sea of Savannah
Teeming with favorite flora and fauna
Here a rhino, there a hyena
and hee hee 'hear' that mynah
So now it's up to you to plan a trip, a Safari
to this land of precious Tanzanite, the land of the Maasai
.Aha, mind you only the mansion overlooking all that is fictional  
and every other detail is soo real and factual.

    I was swept away by enchanting description of your beautiful place dear friend. Your beautiful sketch of the place where you live has given me a very soothing idea to visit this peaceful heavenly place. It was a delightful read Zaynub and thank you for your kind words on my Swaggers Song. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor

    This is a very entertaining and enlightening write "S". Tanzania has a lot to offer, and you make it sound beautiful. May its people be able to enjoy their land in a peaceful atmosphere!! {in Malta 'dar' also means 'house'} // paul
