    To Zanzibar

    September 28 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    After breakfast we got a transfer to Arusha airport for our flight to Zanzibar on Auric Air . I opted to upgrade to a flight instead of a two day drive.

    The plane was tiny. There were 12 seats. I sat right behind the pilot and the gal I was traveling with sat right next to the pilot. Flight was 1.5 hours long. It was a bit frightening as there was only the pilot on board. I kept worrying if something bad happened to pilot...but we made it. It was amazing flying over the water and the island...seeing all the beaches from above.

    We thought we were staying at the beach resort but we actually were in Stone town. Once we got settled at the hotel it was after 4pm. We went for the beach for a a few hours until sunset. It was more a local beach than a tourist beach so people were staring at us. After sunset we did some shopping, and then had dinner upstairs at the tapas restaurant.
