I was lucky enough to go back to Tanzania this summer for work. Most of the time, I was in Mwanza. It's not a particularly touristy town, but it's on the shores of Lake Victoria which is very lovely and picturesque (although teeming with schistosomiasis, a nasty parasite that enters through the skin and makes swimming a bad idea).
There were no music videos when we visited, but it's an awesome spot to watch the sun setting over the lake.
The skirt I'm wearing in these photos is an African wax print. There are tailors in certain areas of town, and they can make clothing from photos. I found a photo of a skirt I liked on Etsy and picked the fabric at the tailor's shop. She took my measurements, and then the skirt was ready 2 days later.
Shirt: very old, Smart Set
Skirt: handmade, from Tanzania (wax print but maxi length)
Purse: very old, Banana Republic
