    ... were getting rather frosty in the car with poor Bev being beautifully up beat and patient in the back. Eventually we decided to switch drivers and I took over within 5 minutes we were in dense thick pea soup fog so not only were we lost we were now driving virtually blind this continued for about 30 miles with hazard lights flashing as it was such poor visibility. We had to keep stopping to ask for directions which was interesting as they are all vey helpful but when ...

    Zanzibar....let's just say that if we died here we would already be in heaven. We considered shacking up with the all too keen locals and living a life of sarongs and sunsets. And cocktails. To make you all jealous we'll give you a day by day run down. Day one, Friday the 21st. We arrived safely despite the dodgy looking planes, and were surprised by the heat and humidity.

    Late start with a walking tour around Stonetown Zanzibar, interesting including a visit to the old slave open market and holding cells, spice market and Freddie Mercury' s birthplace.

Sleep to the sounds of mosque calling - a nearby Muslim ...

When we took Margo to school to see how it looks she was surprised but who wouldn't.. Every day they sing anthem, answer to question hard to them, repeat sentences that school's head wants and they have to act like in army. When they go to classes they have to scream " 1, 2, 3 we are police". I wish I could tell you how it feels to see that ...

    Sadly the African safari has come to end and as we sit by the pool in Zanzibar having a few drinks and looking across the sparkling horizon pool towards towards the aqua sea, It's hard to believe that we have been here for so many weeks. It's also easy to understand how people get mesmerised by Africa, while the poverty and living conditions are disturbing at times the natural beauty, wildlife and the positive, friendly people make you want to come back. ...
