"Zanzibar Dreams" Zanzibar Island by skatzcatz

Zanzibar Island Travel Guide: 420 reviews and 957 photos

Ancient doors of Zanzibar
Dalla dallas, mopeds, noisy cars
Alleyways amazing, street touts a pest
Karibu Inn, treated as a guest

Markets of wonder, cashews a treat
Stores of such plunder, too much to keep
Sunsets beyond description
Emerson and Green Egyptian?

Water so blue, much like your eyes
Storms overhead, lightning across the skys
Safina up north, service to talk
Feast like kings, pool game without chalk

Africa House, decore, charm to wild
Puddles of rain, you danced as a child
Tears from within, you touched my heart
Showed me the monkeys and spoke of their farts

Zanzibar dreams, you've left an impression
500 half hour, expensive internet session
A memory, a place, i'll never forget
you touched my soul and caught me Zanzibar i'm glad we met

    Very helpful page - I'll be in Zanzibar in 2 weeks, so you really helped! I also loved your "personal" touch, especially the "Zanzibar email" section! Thank you!
