      Well the hotel and spa are 5 stars... The food isn't... So if just like me, you love your food, well it's not bad, but could be much better.
      The best food was at Gabi Beach: go there!

      ... Tanzanite.

      We signed up for a Spice Tour and were taken to a plantation about an hour out of Stone Town. We saw how they grew turmeric, ginger, nutmeg, mace, bananas, coconuts, vanilla beans, cinnamon and cardamon. It was fun to touch and smell and see how they were grown.
      A local couple made a rice pilau using some of the spices we'd learned about. It was amazing.

      We were also taken to a lovely beach resort where we could bath. Dawna and I ...

      ... the streets of Stonetown were flooding rapidly. On the first day we had a spice tour. That was awesome because we had a tour of Stonetown before we went into the bush. We saw Freddie Mercurys house and the place where the slaves were kept for the slave trade many years ago. I found out that David Livingstones body was kept in Zanzibar before it went back to England. The actual spice tour was so good. We started off with tea tasting. I loved the ...

And than during the party I lost one!:( and at some point I was very sad and the guy saw it and asked what happened and why I'm so lost and when I explained he gave me his Masai bracelet!!! I am so happy to have it! Now I have something real and it will be a great memory of nice people I met here and just about island. ...

      I write from the VIP lounge on the top deck of The Flying Horse, the slow ferry from Zanzibar to Dar. If we had the option, we would've gone for economy tickets, or even business class, but as mzungu we have no option, so VIP it is. Quite luxurious, with air conditioning and cushy armchairs. We arrived first, by recommendation of the sales man, to secure one of two benches to stretch out and sleep on. Its going to be a long trip back to Dar. Boarded at 7.30pm to leave the harbour ...

      This morning we visited the Jozani forest, a national park that is home to a number of red colubus monkeys. They live only here on Zanzibar. Our guide walked us to where a group of the monkeys were, and they were totally unfazed by our presence. These monkeys cannot digest sugar and eat only flowers and young leaves and some fruits. When these monkeys eat something that is difficult to digest they will eat charcoal as a digestive aid. ...
