Anti Dependancy

Don't be That Guy

If you find yourself in Tanzania, or really anywhere else in Africa where the tribal culture is still present, please please please be respectful and discreet when roaming about. Don't be the one flashing your expensive camera everywhere, and don't push your way into places that don't seem in the least bit welcoming. Tourist dependancy is a terrible thing that's occurring all over these areas. Kids are learning that their culture is marketable and they forgoe education in hopes that the next crew of white people to come through will buy their knicknacks they've accumulated since the last batch that came through.
