Off to Zanzibar

Standard

Jambo! (Hello!) Our time in Zanzibar was filled with many adventures! We started off with two short plane rides and arrived in Zanzibar late Sunday night. Our adventures started the next morning. We toured around the narrow streets of Stone Town and saw the House of Wonders in the morning. In the afternoon, we had a great time at the spice farm where we saw ginger, lemon grass, turmeric, cloves, and vanilla. We also got to try lots of great fruit. A man called Mr. Butterfly also climbed a coconut tree (all the while singing!) and cut open coconuts for us to eat! On Tuesday, we went out to snorkel with dolphins, but due to choppy water and many people becoming seasick we only got to see them, not snorkel with them. The day became much brighter on that afternoon when we got to take amazing pictures of the rare Red Colabous Monkeys and a mangrove swamp! The monkeys ran right by our feet! On Wednesday, we got to see giant tortoises on Prison Island and then went snorkeling in the beautiful water, where we saw some beautiful fish and coral. In the afternoon, we enjoyed shopping for paintings, jewelry, dresses, and other local goods. On Thursday, we had free time at the beautiful infinity pool before we headed back to the airport. We arrived back in Kampala around 1am with many sleepy, but happy children. I would have to say that the pool, pizza, and ice cream were the top favorites for the children! For myself and all the children: Kwaheri! (Goodbye!)
