Lidya lives in Arusha, Tanzania with her mother and grandmother. Her father abandoned the family before Lidya was born. Lidya is in her first year of secondary school. Her favourite subject is biology and one day she would like to become a doctor.
I will be spending Christmas in Australia this year. Thinking about my family and friends back in Arusha, I wanted to take a moment to share with you some of my fondest memories of celebrating Christmas in Tanzania.
