... 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 ...
... it was shocking and funny but after awhile I don't even know what to think. Why his mother doesn't care about it ? Weah, so "hygienic!" Also it's not all about that kid.

It has a quirky feel, one that bypasses the tackiness of many of the tourist properties in the region.

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!
