Hmm. Dental floss? Sounds dubious, but strangers things are true. -- Cimon 15:21, May 28, 2004 (UTC)

I moved the following here because it seems unsourced and somewhat incoherent; can anyone fix it up? — Matt Crypto 23:59, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)

It is still possible, even it continue to change, to differentiate Tanga into the white area (Msungu : European), the Indian/Goan area and the black area.

1. The white area before (but still) was mostly Rascasone, it is still like this, but after international companies and organisations have escaped because Sisal was not anymore of interest, also the international employees have been reduced. Other people of African and Indian/Goan origin have taken over the houses of the white people living in Rascasone. One thing is still obvious; you still need money to live in Rascasone. The High commissioner, the head of the police force directors and all the VIP persons are living in Rascasone.

2. The Indian/Goan area stretches itself from the harbour to the railway station and as the railway as a natural boarder on one end and along tshore to the north.

3. The so-called black area is all behind the railroad stretching to the east were most the rural and poorest areas are settled. do not copy text from other websites withut a gfdl compatible license .it will be deteted. once you click the save button,your changes will be visible immediately.for testing
