    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 ...

To be fair, everyone kept their tempers quite well and were generally quite collegiate, but there were certainly a few irritable people on board, including me and Wayne.

    ... of Dianne's gear can be stuffed into the large backpack before cracking out the straps for the first time ever and carrying the big bag back to the bus. The way back to the bus is along a 300 metre narrow track through dense bush. It is fairly well lit, but Murray has concern about bandits, as he is carrying all the money and documents.
