So after you have maybe sifted through all the safari pictures, you might understand that after all that dust and dryness in the Serengeti, and after the efforts of climing Kili, a little R & R was in order, and so Zanzibar it was... an amazing island- so different from the rest of Tanzania, so beautiful, and so here are a few pictures of the life in the Old Stone Town. I truly felt i was transplanted into the land of sultans and trading!
