Stick Around!

Let's just stick around the East coast of Africa, shall we?
Tales of African dancers and warm nights of roof top dining came straight from Carlin's lips as she gushed about her time spent in Dar es Salaam Tanzania and Zanzibar.

 The Tower Top Restaurant has been slated one of the most romantic restaurants in the world.  I guess so, with five courses served as you watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean!

Carlin's cousin Phyllis and her husband Dan Craun-Selka are doing good work in Africa.  Leaders in the PACT organization, Phyllis and Dan are two people working hard to fulfill Pact's belief "that the best assistance leaves behind knowledge, expertise, and a framework for people to pull themselves out of poverty. We deliver top-level technical assistance in multiple fields such as HIV/AIDS, economic opportunity, the environment, democracy/governance, and peace building."

 The amazing hotel on Zanzibar is 236 Hurumzi

Stay in the Crystal Room, like Carlin did.

After being hugged and squeezed in excitement over our President, several Tanzanians wanted Carlin to say "thank you" and and tell Mr. Obama they love him.  Carlin did just that -- she sent a kanga to the President (with his picture on it) on behalf of the people of Dar es Salaam!  The White House sent her a thank you note.
Carlin is an ambassador and doesn't even know it!

 African women dance through their hips, with solid sway.  Lovely, and real.

I can just smell the exotic scents, and feel the warmth of the sunshine and the kind people of Africa.  Can't you?

Pack your swimsuit - we're going far, far away to the East coast of Africa.

Off the coast of Tanzania is a small island called Pemba.  Pemba Island is host to a most beautiful hideaway --

Carlin's Next Husband

Carlin is a hopeless romantic.
Never a question of "if" she'll get married again, but "when."

She has proclaimed that when she gets married again, her next husband will wear cufflinks....that she will buy for him.

Her love affair leading to a trip down the aisle will be reminiscent of Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.

She so glamorous, he so debonair.....
and most likely wearing cufflinks.

Carlin's man will listen to Frank Sinatra by day, but dance the night away to
DISCO!  'Cause he's like that.

Refined men wear linen(!) and 

Get your man ANZIE cufflinks:
