Where I stayed
The next couple of days Charlie and I explored the island with a moped using Salum's house as base.
The roads were pretty bad, and I suspected some of the local drivers may never have even sat their drivers theory test. So, you can imagine what an unaccommodating place Stone Town is to learn how to drive a moped.
We got through the experience without injury, and the only incident was when we were stopped by the police and told that it was illegal to drive a vehicle in Tanzania that was not covered on your driving license
Much of the island is quite expensive, so I introduced Charlie to the Fetherston tradition of attending posh resorts armed with a picnic. After a couple of different destinations we took the two hour ferry to Dar Es Salaam on the main land.
