Three times – in 2008, 2010 and 2012 – I visited my son Mike and his family in Tanzania. Every time, of course, amateur radio was announced.

On 14 July 2008 waiting was finally over. After a 13-hour flight with comfortable Qatar Airways we – my XYL Inge and I – were warmly welcomed by Mike, his XYL Zawadi and their son Malique on the Julius Nyerere International Airport Dar es Salaam.

In August 2010 I visited with my XYL again our son Mike (5H3EE) and his family in Dar es Salaam. At this time it was also Mike’s daughter Kim with us. We again spent three wonderful weeks of holiday that will remain in our memory.

The 3rd trip to Mike and his family in Tanzania was in August/September 2012. This time only Mike’s daughter Kim was on the trip with me. The happiness was great when Mike, Zawadi, Malique and Yannick welcomed us – because of „small problems“ one day late – at the Dar es Salaam airport.
