... usual array of rainbow coloured tropical fish. Eventually- and with the assistance of a Tanzanian boy with beautifully fine features - I learn to dive deeper, pushing my body down vertically until the water turns cold, my lungs are burning and my ears feel like they're going to burst. It's a truly bizarre and magnificent thing to see the surface of the water above me- to rush towards the sun's image as I gasp for air. Sitting on the nets on the back of the boat afterwards, I ...

... the dive boats we have had over the trip, and this one was a special one. Very African and very rustic. The wood long boat, with small engine, mast, sail and creaky wood planks made for a memorable trip, especially due to the somewhat unkind seas today.

... prostitute. Basically, what Juma told me, is the locals see me as a free and easy score. Thankfully with my husband at my side all the time, no one pursued this idea further than a comment. Juma agreed that this is quite a shocking assumption and in the few hours spent with Martin and I, actually got quite offended on my behalf by his neighbours remarks. I assured him that this wasn't necessary, but was quite grateful that at least one Zanzibarian could see past the dreadlocks. Andrea for the ...

... involving an impressive tooth pick, a papaya & kerosene, it was a very enjoyable time. (Mom, don’t worry, I still have all 10 toes.)

After enjoying a couple days on the beach, we were lucky enough to go on a spice tour. We got to see where most of the spices we use daily come from. We also got to see a man climb a coconut tree and eat a bunch of ...
