On Thursday, what should have been a straight forward bus journey from Nungwi to Stone Town turned into a drama.  After the driver turned up 40 minutes late, he drove down the driveway like a maniac and hit the fence.... check out the photo of the damage to the windscreen as a result.... !!  There was a police stop not far from the hotel, and after the police examined the damage and claimed the vehicle was "safe" to drive, a police escort came on the bus... not convinced it was for our safety, but to protect the driver after we gave him grief after crashing the vehicle.

From Stone Town the rest of the tour caught the ferry back to Dar es Salaam, while 6 of us had decided to stay on for an extra couple of days to avoid the next two days of driving, and meet up with them on Saturday in Arusha.

In the meantime we pottered about the markets, enjoyed the good food, and as Freddie Mercury was born in Stone Town, went to the bar dedicated to him.
