What is the Wim Hofmethod

I’m in nothing but my soaked bathing suit and my woolen hat dancing to an upbeat tune, and after about one minute of a fun-filled, ungraceful jig, I can feel my body getting warmer. The 12 people similarly shaking it on Que Caliente beside me must be heating up again, too — everybody has a huge smile on thei...

Traditional Tanzanian stews

Tanzania has over 100 tribes residing peacefully across the country’s splendid highlands, coastlines, and vast plains. Two of those tribes, the Chagga and the Iraqw, are known for hearty, filling stews that highlight two of Tanzania’s most abundant crops — bananas and maize.

These glaciers are among the most breathtaking geological monuments on the planet. Now is the time to see these glaciers — before they’re gone. 1. Trif...

On witnessing a Maasai circumcision

I went to Tanzania because I wanted to meet Maasai people. Their customs, dress, and lifestyle had long captivated my imagination. Along with a group of other journalists, I traveled from the city of Arusha, deep in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro. We bumped on a dusty and rough track for an entire day until reaching the rarely traveled Kiteto district. Our visit was to coincide with a celebration of circumcision.

The Bus to Mwanza

The summer before we were married my husband introduced me to Tanzania. Within two weeks we crossed the country from east to west, smelling our way through a spice tour on Zanzibar, sipping Tusker lager at the Mweka gate of Mount Kilimanjaro and following an elephant family through the dried up Tarangire riverbed while on safari. However, those excursions were all sideshows to the main event: visiting family, which means eating with family. Every other day we traveled to a new city or village w...
