    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!

    ... swam in the sea that warm before (and no it wasn't pee). Then we attempted the ride back, and if course by now the tide has come back in again, all the way in. So now the ride back became more of an adventure through the back streets of the villages, along the main high way back onto the sand again which was too soft now, lifted the bikes down some rocks though numerous hotels and eventually we made it ...

    ... are now considered vulnerable.

    After returning to Stone Town we had lunch and then went to the local market. Quite an experience with anything and everything for sale. It is definitely not a tourist market as we were one of the few white people there.

    Later we played cards on the hotel's rooftop terrace and then went for dinner at Livingstone's (I presume).

    ... sitting next to him looked at me and gave him a big slap round the head. I laughed for quite a while about that one. So far I have had 2 marriage proposals and 3 proposals to have babies, they have all tried to persuade me by saying how cute mixed babies are.

    So we made our way over to Zanzibar. We left with beautiful sunshine and arrived to thunderstorms. I thought it was one of things that would pass but no! The next two days it was ...

    ... I'm too much paranoid but it's getting really unsafe feeling here especially after the last few accidents I wrote before and small silly Robbery next to dala station too (I guess). 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! This time was with a local gentleman named Juma who explained the history and origins of so much of what we'd been walking past obliviously. 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 ...
