Welcome to Tanzania!

Land of safaris, Mt Kilimanjaro, and the place we have chosen to spend the next period of our life!

Follow me and my wife Yuki as we experience this massive change to our lives. Watch and see if it all falls apart, or if we make a go of it.

Duncan Drury

Duncan DruryThat’s me. I was born in 1975 near Milton Keynes, spent my formative years in Brampton, Cumbria, wherre the whole Tanzanian connection began with the William Howard School Tanzanian Link. I visited Uru Secondary School twice, in 1991 and 1993, and have dreamt of returning ever since.

I studied Anthropology at UCL, and did field work in Ethiopia in 1996. Since finishing college I have worked at a variety of places, and got into IT, like so many others.

Yuki Finch

Yuki FinchShe’s my wife. I met her whilst studying at UCL. She is from Texas, USA. She moved to London in 1999, fell in love, and got married in October 2000. She also studied Anthropology. She worked in PR, but got enamoured enough to follow me to Africa.


One thought on “About

  1. Dear Yuki,

    I’m really sorry to bother you, and I’m sorry to have used this email address. I hope I have found the correct Yuki.

    For the last two years I have been researching a lady named Sarah Tapping/Mayer with a plan to write a biography of her life. Through my research into the part of her life that involved judo, I came across your name on the Kano Society website and managed to find this email address of yours through the power of Google!

    I just wondered if you would be interested in chatting about Sarah as it seems that she spent a year or so living at the house of your great grandparents in Japan in the 1930s.

    Anyway, let me know if you are interested, sorry to have troubled you again, thanks for your time.

    Best wishes

    Amanda Spenn
