      ... little rickety sailing boat turned up to collect 15 of us. I loved the whole experience and what should have taken 40 minutes - Zanzibar time might I add, took 2 1/2 hrs of very choppy sailing but extremely good fun. At one point we had a massive orange tarpaulin over us to shield us from the elements. When we finally arrived the weather cleared and we snorkelled for about 1 hr saw lots of really cool fish. We then stopped off at an island on the way back for a BBQ. When we got back ...

      We did a little shopping here and there and then Ali took us to Freddie Mercury's house. I said to Ali, "get out, no way!" But indeed it was Freddie's house. I never knew he lived in Zanzibar for a while.

That's true you pay only 2000Tsh (1,1$) to drive ~60 kilometers one way, so people who wants to save money uses that. So there was a guy, around ...

      In the first afternoon we just walked along the beaches and Ziga and I checked in with a few different dive centers to get some prices. All the different dive centers do ...

      ... showing off for us! The second days dives were a bit closer we took a wooden boat called a dhow (spelt wrong i know) out and it ended up being the same kind of thing first dive was more coral, but really good conditions. I'm talking every color of the rainbow and so many textures and things flowing in the current and little creatures living on the coral. The coral was in such good shape compared to thailand where its becoming a bit bleached. The second was more fish ...
