After enjoying some snorkeling/beach time on the Kenyan coast we headed to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania to catch a pricey ferry to Zanzibar. Despite the higher prices, particularly for accommodation, we are having a great time. The island is surrounded by beautiful beaches and we continue to get lost in the winding, narrow streets of Stone Town. We spent a couple nights in Jambiani (right on the beach) where we made a boat trip to snorkel with Dolphins and other sea life. We have also eaten some interesting sea life.....octopus, barracuda, shark, etc. Over the next couple days we plan to head to Malawi (hopefully by train) to do some hiking and hanging out on Lake Malawi.

Looks like a bit of paradise there in Zanzibar. Spectacular sunrises. Love the photo of Holly about to eat curried octopus! And the huge serving of rice! Funny! Glad you are having a wonderful time. Think of us here enduring more snow storms/winter blasts:(
Take care. Lots of love, Mom and Dad DeRoche

Is that a giant grasshopper? And you ate it? Boy, Holly - you are a 'real' trouper!!! Looks like you continue to see some beautiful country tho. I imagine you will have a wonderful collection of pictures for memories! Continue to travel safe.

Zanzibar has been a great spot to relax for a couple days. Although we are ready to move on now to new (and cooler - temperature wise - things).

Swimming with dolphins looks very cool. Something I would love to do.
Keep having a blast!
