Time has run out on us so cannot write alot, we are here for a few days now to hopefully get those sun rays we seem to be missing!!!
On our way to Arusha on the 19th hopefully update again then, hope your all well, lots of love n & t xx
So we had our 6 days in Zanibar and are relaxed refreshed and rearing to go again, the rains followed us for a couple of days but other than that stunning weather and we stupidly got ourselves scaulded on day 3 and had to hide under flax beach umbrellas but it was fine still stunning to be there and watch beach life unfold in front of us, it is seaweed season there and they harvest it for export to Japan among other places, so altough the tide goes out along way for half the day it was really interesting watching all the woman rush out to tend to there farms and leave their kids to play on the sand in front of us, so cute.
Stone Town was an amazing place - rich with culture with its Persian, Arabic and Indian background. Lots of small alleyways to explore, and lots of street touts to avoid, but all part of the fun! And a big highlight was our first sunset in Zanzibar, while having a beer at a hotel looking over Zanzibar Channel, a school of dolphins went past and decided to put on an amazing show of acrobatics - complete with backward flips and somersaults!
And one of the best parts of being in Zanzibar as a whole - apart from the sunshine and turqouise seas is the wonderful seafood and fresh fruit - we gauged ourselves on lots of fish, squid, prawns, (and one celebratory meal of lobster to congratulate ourselves on the coast to coast trip!), and the fruit which seems to be missing in large parts of Africa was plentiful - so we feel healthy (and fat!) at the moment.
