Get lazy. Stop time. Forget days and dates. Forget the world. Collect memories and seashells. Only decision you need to make is what the next meal should be. Life is tough. Smile at each glance of the turquoise Indian Ocean, and each other. You are still in paradise – r e l a x e d .

As you know, there is minimal wifi on the mountain, so this post is posted on the proposed date of the climb (as well as subsequent posts).  I will have an update below for when we return with added tidbits.

One last early morning game drive before our flight from Serengeti airstrip to Zanzibar.
Saw black backed jackal, African elephant, baby Pumba!
Took a flight from the Seronera air strip to Zanzibar in a twin prop engine plane that seats 11.  A lil bit scary.
Zanzibar:
Mostly Muslim country. Very busy and chaotic traffic. Visited stone town market and saw the various meats and veggies and spices. Then ventured to the Anglican Church which was the sight for the abolition of slavery. The lower floor used to be a holding cell for slaves. Small, dark, damp, dungeon with chains. Great lunch spot Lamann.  Excellent food.
So many alleyways within town.  Saw the Old Fort and the water front.  Headed to Spice Tour and saw all kinds of incredible spice sources. Cinnamon tree, nutmeg, vanilla bean, cardamom, ginger, pepper, just amazing to see all the real natural sources. After that checked into our hotel and hit the beach. Gorgeous white sands. Warm water. Indian Ocean is nice and warm. Came back and had dinner at the hotel. Gorgeous sunset.
