          ... climbed to the top of a very tall coconut tree whilst singing. This guy was mad! We were then gifted with a flax crown, ring and handbag while the boys only got a flax hat (like King Julian's off Madagascar!). We enjoyed these gifts while drinking coconut. When the tour had finished we had the opportunity to buy different spices and try some of the local fruit. Excellent tour! At around 5 our group: Me, Matt, Rach, Leigh, Nat and Annie ventured out ...

          We make our way from the beach resort to stone town which is on the other side of the island, making a pit stop for a few hours to enjoy a spice tour. Here we were shown all of the local spices and fruit grown here including cloves, mango, coconut, turmeric and many more. All native to the island. One of the local boys climbed the highest coconut tree to collect fresh coconuts for us, unbelievably high! Obviously the highlight ...

After "fictive" dinner we went to sleep and the same second head touched the pillow I fell asleep and seemed just that after few minutes the alarm rang and ...

          ... I'm living with a ~35 year old woman, Mariam, and her 11 year old daughter, Faizah. There is a little woman's clothing/accessories store in our home that my host mom occasionally opens. I asked her why not every day and *I think* she said she was waiting for people to pay her for things they bought, kind of like a microcredit operation, in order to buy more things. Faizah is at government school in the morning and Madrasa in the evening ...

          "I give you special evening price"
          and then the guilt playing on your pity:
          "Please buy from me/support me. I haven't sold anything all day/week"

          We spent 9 days on Zanzibar, slightly longer than we'd planned (though we could have stayed longer) and we returned to Dar es Salaam for a night before heading north west up into the hills again.
