Today I was inspired by the awe of the Ngorongoro Crater, so I am going to talk about the Ngorongoro crater:
The Ngorongoro Crater is a famous crater in Tanzania, and one of the 7 natural wonders of Africa. We visited it a couple of days ago, and it is tremendous — 14 miles across! It is famous for being filled with animals, and one of the last places holding black rhinos. It was formed about 2.5 million years ago, so the genus Homo was around by that time. It started as a volcano with tons of magma inside. Eventually the volcano erupted, and the lava dried making mountains of rock on the side. When all the lava had blown out, the original mountain collapsed inside the empty hole which formed the crater.

What we actually did today is we went out to explore Stone Town, got poured on, and ate a delicious African meal for lunch. But wait, why is/are the word(s) rice pudding in the title? Because today we bought some very warm milk that a bicycler was selling, and we did not know if it had been boiled to get rid of bacteria. We also had some rice so then we could make rice and beans (a very boring dish which contains rice and beans). So we went out and got cinnamon and had almost sugar-free rice pudding for dinner.
