... and hilarious. That morning, I swim in the ocean- so warm and flat that it's like bath water - and then cover myself in coconut oil and let the sun sink into every inch of my exposed skin, warming me to my bones.

... island was initially built for prisoners but it was never used, instead it was used as a quarantine facility for sick passengers before they cleared customs for Zanzibar. Our last night at the Jafferji house we had dinner on the rooftop, with a lovely view of stone town.
