    ... stares & the women certainly didn't want their pictures taken, so I had to be discreet. We picked up our luggage that had been stored back at the Serena Zanzibar & with a driver, Ahmad took us to visit a spice plantation. We falsely expected something like the pineapple plantations in Hawaii, as this was just a stop off the road into a treed grove. A young man, Edie, broke off leaves & bark from various plants & had us guess what ...

    ... Other than a few holding cells which can be seen inside St Monica’s Hostel next door, little remains of brutal past. The cells are cramped, small spaces where slaves were kept prior to auction. It’s hard to imagine that they were able to fit 75 men in one cell and 50 women and kids in another. Before each slave was auctioned they would bring them to a tree at the centre and whip them, this was the test of how ...

    ... even bites on my palms---my palms!

    I met with my new friend Adil and we went to a local sports bar which consisted of a 42 in flat screen in a room the size of a small gymnasium.

    ... find souvenir shops before pigging out at the night markets. The shopping was hugely successful and our bartering skills were on top form. It was now time for the night markets...what can I say?! We had the best night sampling all sorts of Zanzibar cuisine including: falafel, meat skewers, kebab, sugar cane juice, and last but definitely not least, Zanzibar pizza!!!
