    ... choppy so we both sat out the back and enjoyed the
    fresh air and waves. The boat arrived in Stone Town where we planned
    to stay for a few days. Zanzibar has its own immigration so upon
    exiting the boat you have to fill out another immigration form and
    clear customs and then you got hassled by touts trying to get you to
    stay at places where they can get commission. We knew where we were

    ... to decorate classes so had to leave there. Besides that we also did a painting day with the smallest ones! And there were really a lot of colors! Not only on hands and papers but clothes also. We did palm stamps on the paper with colors that kids chose and than attached that to the wall; also writing their names.

    ... biggest turtles I've ever seen! We fed them, and since they weren't caged we got to get up right by them! I could have stayed there all day. We watched a couple of them mating too, which was....interesting haha. But they were so amazing, I loved it. There was a little pen for the "teenagers" and a different one for the babies. The babies were tiny! But the teens were still a lot bigger than any turtle I've seen at home. The adult turtles all had numbers painted on their backs, ...
