... to finish off our curio and Christmas present shopping, sample some more island seafood delicacies in the market and soak in the last of the island vibe before boarding our ferry back to Dar Es Salaam. The overnight return trip was very luxurious compared to our trip there with aircon, soft seats, mattresses on the floor and a tv showing movies…all for just $20pp and no seasickness!
