Welcome to Zanzibar – not just a funny name, it's hot and muggy too!
Boy, hit the nail on the head there, Phil. We’re just kicking the tires on the rainy season now so the temps are ramping up, the clouds come and go with no rhyme or reason and when it does actually rain it comes down fierce, and it’s tough to tell if …
... water polo game. Meanwhile, I bided my time at the swim-up pool bar and took advantage of the first elliptical I've seen since leaving home. We drank cocktails at sunset, then walked along the sea wall, which the ocean was crashing against, as it was high tide. We hadn't sprung for our resort's all-inclusive package (we weren't feeling that much "hakuna matata"), so steered clear of the expensive hotel dining options and instead made our way to a ...
... After being fitted up for flippers we set off round the coast and anchored off and island to the north west of Zanzibar. As soon as we got into the water the fish were there.

I still hear the words of the chef in my ear: "sorry, we don't have the fish you ordered anymore but I will bring you another one.." -some hours later, I had food poison and won't go into details, but it was really awful. At the same time, like many times before, the toilet did not flush - again no details..
Besides that, you can't swim during low tide (sea is far off the coast), nor during hide tide (too big waves). At Kendwa rock, only 10min by car, go get a nice beach for the same price - go there!!!
