Zanzibar Day 2, I'm ready for you Featured
This morning we woke up to rain and extreme humidity, but nothing a scrumptious breakfast can’t fix.

We started off our trip with a site inspection and lunch at the 5* Park Hyatt in Zanzibar, the lunch was excellent and their 'piece de resistance' is the famous Banana Cheesecake. The hotel is beautifully appointed, very elegant and decor is fresh white with touches of yellow, gold, beige and turquoise which bring it to life.
A 2-hour historical walking tour of Stonetown through the narrow and winding streets with bikes and motorbikes ringing their bells and hooters for us to make way for them - we explored the Anglican Church, the Slave Museum, fort, House of Wonders and the palace. Lots of hawkers with big smiles encouraging us but their sarongs and jewellery.
A quick venture into the Memories of Zanzibar shop, I decided that bargaining with hawkers was far more fun and came away with beautiful white Zanzibar sarongs @ a good deal.
