      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!

      Ruairi: Hi losers, currently enjoying myself in Zanzibar, doing absolutely nothing constructive as previously planned. Kili took ages to climb due to the issue of having a lack of oxygen. In a few days I’m sure I’ll be dragged away back to you guys, please make sure there is money ...

      ... 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 ...

      ... bones. First stop though is the fish market. Graham and Lynne had said it was quite an experience and that should we go, we would be thankful of wearing closed shoes. Correct on both counts. There is a strip of merchant stalls selling the most impressive sea shells. One of these guys unpack shells in order of wow-factor and the last is a kind of spiney affair which looks very delicate, beautiful. It almost sways my resolve of not purchasing shells here.

When these monkeys eat something that is difficult to digest they will eat charcoal as a digestive aid. ...
