Beautiful Zanzibar - the land of coconuts& cloves, mazes& mosques, beaches& sunshine divine. My friend Al joined me for a fortnight of sun dhow'ners& a veritable marine safari, which included some scuba diving, dolphin spotting& a get together with a band of giant tortoises. Stone Town is a maze of alleyways& mosques, with rich Swahili& Arabic architecture; hawkers selling dates on street corners& children scampering though the streets on their way to school. The beaches are beautiful& often populated with locals, swishing their kangas, harvesting sea-weed, digging for worms (to use as bait) or preparing their dhows for the afternoon's fishing. I recommend!
