Mbeya City (AFRICA): 

Mbeya is a small city in Southwest Tanzania (East Africa). It is a small city with around 275,000 people. The city is filled with lakes and greenery with dark and old trees.

Morning is really good there as you will get up with birds melody sound. The people there are very calm and friendly. Their culture is very much similar to Indian culture and they mingle with other people with love and affection.
