Favorite thing: The swahili coast goes from north Kenya to south Tanzania, including wonderful beaches and nice colonial towns and islands, as Mafia, Lamu, Zanzibar...
The Swahili coast has been the site of cultural and commercial exchanges between East Africa and the outside world particularly the Middle East, Asia, and Europe since at least the 2nd century C.E.
