Nungwi, Zanzibar, January 14, 2016
We had a 5 am start for the ferry to leave Dar Es Salaam for the island of Zanzibar. Our first activity was a spice tour.
Lemon grass has a very strong citronella flavour-
Tumeric grows as a tuber-
And looks lots like carrot-
The safari ants form two outside walls while the workers file through the center-
But cinnamon comes from the bark of the tree.
This looks like rambutan on the outside-
Jack fruit are gigantic and excellent tasting-
The leaves on the teak tree are huge circles-
Jambo shimmied up the coconut tree to cut one down for us-
The beach is gorgeous: white sand and beautiful blue water-
