... seen a lock like this before. To put them at ease I held it up and tried to show them it was a lock but they jolted back and looked even more terrified so I thought I'd best just let it go and let them just watch it for the duration of the journey!
These buses do make me laugh. It's the same on mainland in Moshi - the buses get packed so if a lady comes on with a baby or child, instead of someone letting them sit in their place, the Mum just passes the child to a ...
... with. Nungwi Village was charming, but alarmingly poor in the shadow of so many grand beachfront hotels. The wealth from tourism does not appear to trickle down to village residents, many of whom are probably fishermen. It was a little hard to see the conditions of the village shacks.
We found the dive shop, run by a retired Austrian couple, and confirmed our dives for the next day. We then spent the rest of the afternoon on the beach, at ...
... We are living the dream! We also took out the kayaks - briefly - as Garf is suffering with a sore back. Borrowed snorkel gear and twice swam out to the coral. Lots of little Nimo type fish, a few trumpet fish and disgusting looking sea cucumbers. Booked a specialty restaurant for tonight. Only 11 tables in the whole restaurant. Beautiful restaurant. Garfield had wildebeest and I had barracuda. Would recommend them both! ...
We have arrived in Zanzibar today and we have spent the day exploring Stone Town. Stone Town is situated on the west cost in the middle of the island and it is named for the coral stone used to build its buildings. It is a Muslim village and it is full of mosques and a lot of Arabic architecture.

... stroke, swimming sedately into the waves getting a terrible neck crick. On the way several fishing boats try to rescue us, apparently unable to believe that anyone would voluntarily be in the middle of the channel, we fend off their helping hands with curses and flailing blows.

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!!!
