This week at the Current we went on an amazing safari to Tanzania, revisited our road trip across the United States, and more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.



Tanzania was our Country of the Week. We looked at its fascinating history from pre-colonial, to the rule of different European powers, to one of Africa’s more successful countries in the modern day. See more HERE.

In our Travel Guide we discovered the wealth of options Tanzania has for any visitor. Cities, beaches, and some of the best natural areas (and wildlife) in the world are all in easy reach. Get our guide HERE.

Our Currency Spotlight broke down the basics of the Tanzanian shilling and the economy as a whole. As the currency since 1966, it has been a constant for the East African nation. Read more HERE.
