Well after being captivated by the wonders of Stone Town my feet once more became itchy and I felt the need to wander once more. I was on the verge of leaving with a fantastic offer from Simon (one of the Canadians from our safari) to head east and catch up in Paje.

I quickly changed out of my dress before going and found a million bites on my legs that seem like sand fly bites. When we were in the souviner shop I used a basket to scratch my legs.

It's like the hotel California where you can check in but never leave. Very good dorms for 27,000 TSH a night and great bar staff. Ok food at good prices.
