Our day to leave Fumba and head back into town to stay at Stone Town - the oldest part, first settled by fisherman, its first stone house being built during the 1830's, but becoming the capital of the Sultanate of Oman in 1840. In 1861 Zanzibar became an independent Sultanate. Our hotel accommodation was in an Indian style with lots of carvings and …

... Starbuck's and a Bagels&Beans. Not very authentic, but very tasty! And again, for Marianne, who's only had ugali and beans for 9 months, the pita and humus and avocado-and-mango-salad are a big treat!

When we bump into the busy bus station again, we think we can find our way back to the hostel: "this is where I stumbled with my backpack!" "this is where I started to wonder where this strange man was taking us!" "this is where I started doubting if we ...

So Long and Thanks For All the Fish

But let's be honest, if you know Nicholas, you might have expected that title was coming for a while now. What else could it really be?

The bummer about timing things around a 3:00 ferry is that it really doesn’t leave you with many options on either side of the boat. If it were a 4:00 boat you could reasonably schedule a morning/afternoon outing, or if it were a morning boat you could try to schedule something on the flip side ...

    Beautifully restored hotel, with comfortable rooms and a lovely sense of history. The bar and pool area is gorgeous, but they don't sell alcohol. We really loved it there

    We had a tag-along traveller, so we had to ask for a room with enough room to put an extra bed in. Instead, they upgraded our room and we ended up with one of the most luxurious rooms in the hotel: third floor, facing street (can't remember which side). Two or three four-poster beds in a room about 400-500 sq. ft.

    Breakfast room is on the roof, so the view is incredible with breakfast. The pool is small but quaint and much appreciated given the oppressive muggy heat of Zanzibar in November. Staff are a bit lackadaisical, but I fear this is more the norm than the exception in Zanzibar. It's an island and island time rules here!
