Trip to Zanzibar

The ferry ride from Dar es Salaam to the island of Zanzibar was amazing! The wind was blowing in our faces and throwing our hair into funny and unusual styles. We arrived and stayed at the Blue Earth Bungalows (www.blueearthbungalow.com/). Our view of the beach was breathtaking. The sun shining bright on our faces, hot sand in between our toes, warm sea water, and of course, with great company. On the beach we shared our kites with the local children. All of us went snorkeling in the Indian Ocean! We saw so much sea life, it was such an exhilarating experience. After dinner, we sat around a bonfire with the locals and sang together. The locals would sing a song in Kiswahili and then our group would match their song with an English one. We went back and forth for some time and with many laughs. During a game of touch-tag, we all took turns dancing around the fire. In the morning, some of us awoke to watch the sunrise. What a beautiful sight it was. Words and pictures can not do justice to how wonderful and beautiful this trip was.
