Anyway not only dala dala Is special. People carry the door while riding the bike. Is the door that light or is the guy that strong? Interesting things: 1) They don't have mcdonalds but they were it's tshirts. 2) they have cola in glass bottles in 350 ml. And it is so sweet >< 3) they ...
... and this is dragging on a bit long, today we went on a walk around Stone Town, again!

It was great to hear and he was very helpful with our loads of questions. One thing I'll mention as its a personal one. I asked him what the locals opinion of dreadlocks are, as during our many hours spent walking and cycling I was possibly called ...
