This was my first time to visit Zanzibar. It consists of two islands and is a semi-autonomous part of mainland Tanzania.
|On the ferry from Dar es Salaam to Stone Town, Zanzibar|
Stone Town is a very fascinating place, full of history.
|Stone Town is know for its ornately carved wooden doors.|
|It's also known for shuttered windows and narrow passageways.|
|A reminder of the slave trade that once took place here|
After a few days exploring Stone Town, I went across the island to Jambiani Beach.
|Determined to not get sunburned!|
|It was great to randomly stay in the same guesthouse as these American missionaries. They spend 3-6 months of the year in Kenya.|
|Fresh-squeezed (and iced) mango/passion juice. Ahh....|
I had such spectacular views with flying back to Nairobi, via Mombasa.
It had been a wonderfully great trip!
