    Spice Tour and Stone Town tour

    October 1 in Tanzania ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    After breakfast we checked out of the nice hotel and then went on a spice tour. We got to see several spices and try different ones. These are the ones we got to see: Jack fruit, Lemongrass, Pepper, Coffee, Nutmeg, Tangerine, Durian-stink fruit, Ginger, Cardamom, Aloe Vera, Ylang Lang tree, Pineapple plant, Vanilla plant (not ripe), Banana plant, Coconut, Cinnamon, Tumeric.

    I bought some lemongrass soap, Zanzibar mix perfume and some cooking spices.

    Then we drove back into Stone Town and checked into our hotel (same as before—Tausi Palace). Our lunch took forever!!

    Then we did the walking tour. We first went to the Arab fort and saw the ampitheather. Then went to the waterfront and learned about the house of wonders. Then we went through the market. And went to the slave Museum exhibit, saw the slave monument, and Anglican Church.
