Get up at 5.30, pack my stuff and go to the Dalla-Dalla. You have to be in time because only 1 Dalla-Dalla per day goes to the other side of the island. Before we could leave everybody had to push the bus before it could start....hahaha. When back in Kilindoni I went to the same guesthouse and dropped my stuff. This day I went with Afro (one of the few people that can talk a bit of English) to check out the village and walked along the beach to Las Kismani Mafia. Very nice (see pictures). 

During this day I informed about the diving which takes place at Utende at the east of the island. The south and eastern part of Mafia is a national park where you have to pay $20 a day just to be there so it was better to arrange stuff from here and I booked 2 dives @ Big Blu Mafia for $70 the next morning.
In the afternoon did my first laundry in Africa and in the evening checked my Facebook and stuff and created a Couchsurfing account for Afro. During my trip I see myself as a 'Couchsurf promoter' because both sides (Mzungu's and Africans) can profit from it. It's a great way to share thoughts, teach some English and other skills, and to discover a place which you do not know, especially if you're traveling alone.
