    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 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.

    ... smarts and to not do drugs. I don't think our group will have any problems. That night we had dinner and enjoyed a concert at Dhow Music Academy, which is right next to the harbor.

    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. ...
