Message to Zanzibar 3

This is a message I want to write to my host from Zanzibar who I stayed with last summer. I have copied the Swahili version followed by the English version:

Ndugu Ishaq,

Natumaini wewe ni vizuri na unapenda kadi hii na taarifa kuhusu Mount Rainier katika Washington. Mimi kuona Mount Rainier kutoka nyumba yangu. Chris Engler akaniambia wewe ni mwongoza wa mpya mradi wa utalii ng’amba katika Uzi. Hiyo ni ya kusisimua na nafikiri mnafanya mazoezi kiingereza mengi kwa kusema kwa kiingereza watalii. Tafadhali unatoa msaada kwa Aliy kutoa zawadi katika sanduku hii kwa mtu yeyote ambaye mahitaji yao. Mimi alama zawadi baadhi kwa wanawake na watoto, na zawadi nyingine ni kwa mtu yeyote. Tafadhali mwambie Raziki, Hussein, na Hassan nasema jambo. Na unatoa kumkumbatia kwa mama yako, na kumwambia nakosa boga kitamu!

Tutaonana tena inshallah,

Katie


Dear Ishaq,

I hope you are doing well and you enjoy this card with information about Mount Rainier in Washington. I can see this mountain from my house in Washington. Chris Engler told me you are a guide for the new turtle tourism project in Uzi. That is exciting and I bet you are practicing English very much so you can speak with the tourists. Please help Aliy give the gifts to anyone who needs them. I have labeled some gifts for women and children, and the other gifts are for anyone. Please tell Raziki, Hussein and Hassan I say hello. Also give your mother a hug and tell her I miss her delicious squash!

I will see you again, God willing,

Katie
