    ... stone structures. Apparently, about 80 percent of the buildings are in a state of deterioration, because they were built with the soft coral stone that gives the city its distinct look but doesn't stand the test of time. Without question, the Old Slave Market impacted us the most. The British built their Anglican cathedral on the grounds of the slave market immediately after Zanzibar ended its slave trade, but preserved some evidence of the heinous ...

As every day 4 times a day. I won. P.s. Water is not here already for 10 days. 2. Went for snorkeling today again. Amazing corals stole my heart :). 3. Zanzibarians really drive like crazy. Car accidents and traffics every few kms. 4. In the house we love they steal money. Still under "observation" who will be ...

    ... tour. We walked around to various plants and got to learn about the different spices. We sampled or a least smelled many of the items including ginger, cinnamon, ylangylang, a very bitter fruit,vanilla, cloves, black pepper, lemon grass more. It was interesting to see the plants that many of the spices start as. Then we got to sample ginger tea, chai tea, and lemon grass tea with a drop of real vanilla. That one was my favorite and maybe the first time I have really enjoyed tea! ...
