    ... by the warm Indian Ocean or by the equally warm pool.

    Evenings were spent eating and socializing with our new friends. The restaurant has a different theme every evening. The first was a large BBQ, the second was a Spice theme with various Indian types of dishes and the third was a set dinner of a beef fillet or fish. Guess which one we chose! It was fun hanging out with Maria, Brian, Kathie and David and all too soon it was time for us to ...

    ... they were really enthusiastic about the different spices, one of the guys climbed about 30 metres up this coconut tree and started singing, bit crazy but bloody impressive. Jess was really hungover and all I really wanted to do was to put my arm around her or hold her hand, but I knew that wasn't an option.

    The next morning was another early one as we are heading into the often traffic jammed Dar Es Saleem. With such an early start most of the bus decided to sleep for the first couple hours. I could not get comfortable in the seats, so i opted for the floor which turned out to be a brilliant idea as i had a few hours of some what quality sleep.
