The road from Dar es Salaam to Dodoma, the capital city of Tanzania. It’s a long road. Google Maps tells me it’s 502 kilometres, with an estimated journey time of 8 hours and 7 minutes. I asked Maxence, a journalism trainer who is travelling with me to Dodoma, how long he thought the journey would take. Five hours, he guessed. Maybe six. Then he looked at the steadily falling rain. “But of course,” he said, “one cannot predict the future.”
