Zanzibar—Bwejuu and Stone Town—report (long)

To have some down-time after the Rwanda sojourn, I spent a week on the island of Zanzibar. I was really excited to check out the island’s cuisine with the obvious seafood combined with the African, European, Arabic, and Asian (Indian) influences. The meals were ok to delicious; unfortunately, like I experienced in Rwanda, the seafood, with some nice pieces of fish, were often over-cooked. And like Rwanda, sometimes the food took 2 hours to come out. Most meals were about $6-8USD, aside from the splurge at the roof top resto at 236 Hurumzi. When I went $1USD = 1500 TSh (Tanzanian shillings). I wish I’d brought back some of the famous spiced coffee, although I think I can add some cardamom pods to my cuppa joe at home.

The following are photos from some meals in both places.
