Get To Know Zanzibar
"One of East Africa’s great trading centres, the archipelago has been for centuries a crossroads of culture, a melting pot of influences where Africa, India and Arabia meet...Zanzibar’s major attraction is Stone Town, with its whitewashed, coral-rag houses, quaint shops, bazaars, mosques, courtyards and squares. Another draw card is its spectacular sea, edged by fine, white-sand beaches." Lonely Planet; Zanzibar is one of the most exotically beautiful places in the world: See this New York Times article about Zanzibar.
This trip changed my life in a way that can never be compared.
