  1. What was your mother’s name?
    In Chapter 4, page 27, all the relatives who came to say good bye to Alladin and Prembai are mentioned. Some came from Verawar and Kodinar. Do you recognize any names?
    There was an elderly lady in Tanga who, when I was 6 or 7, would pinch my cheeks and tell me I was a Chachario. Her name was Sonbai Kooka.

  2. ERROR–KOROGWE IS ABOUT 50 MILES WEST OF TANGA PORT. SOUTH OF TANGA IS PANGANI WHERE P RIVER FLOWS INTO INDIAN OCEAN. A TRIBUTARY OF MIGHTY RUVU RIVER FLOWS INTO OCEAN NEAR SAADANI, SOUTH OF PANGANI. MORE TO THE SOUTH ON THE COAST ARE BAGAMOYO (LEAVE MY HEART BEHIND) & Capital DAR ES SALAAM. MOSHI IS NORTH OF KOROGWE, ABOUT 180 MILES FROM THE COAST.. *COUNT MOOLJI NAZARALI’S SON JIMMY LIVES IN VANCOUVER BC & MAY BE NOORMOHAMED DADANI IS RELATED TO NANJI DADANI WHOSE SONS & DAUGHTERS ALSO LIVE IN VANC.. BEST WISHES.

  3. Thanks for your comments. Doesn’t the Ruvu join the Pangani and then flow past Korogwe? Distances in miles are rounded off as they are given by people talking. I know about Jimmy and I’ll try to connect with Nanji Dadani.
