It was a real buzz with all the amazing street food. We tried a banana and chocolate pizza which was all cooked in front of us and was delicious. Off to the mysterious ...
... local boat was an interesting experience, basically the aim of the game is to get yourself a space on the boat alongside hundreds of locals ( most carrying huge bags and buckets on their heads), motorbikes and cars, techniques included pushing, shoving and squeezing.

The first day we walk around on our own, of course get lost ...
... so we bought them a bottle of wine for dinner. They invited us to sit at their table for dinner. They live in Johannesburg, South Africa but are planning to move to San Francisco. We invited them to visit us when they get to the states.
We are still used to going to bed early and rising early so that is what we did our last night in Zanzibar. Tomorrow we fly to Dar es Saalam. From there we head home.
