Tanzania – A place that is close to my heart

Tanzania is the reason why I am 2nd generation African. Although I was born in Europe, both my father and myself have grown up in Africa. My Grandfather brought the family to Africa. Post war Europe was not really a fun place, and an opportunity arose to work on Amboni Estates in Tanga for my Grandfather. He was an architect and what better place to build than in Africa, have a new start and an adventure. I know very little about these times, but from the photos I am in love with its simplicity, yet order. Its kindness and chaos and its tranquility.
