    Malindi Art

    March 1, 2020 in Tanzania ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    The bar did open in the morning - for breakfast. A plate of fruit and an omelette accompanied by a pot of tea with milk on the side were all included in the 30,000 TSh room price. The shared bathrooms did not alter my appreciation of my first good brekky, the value for money and the amazing decorations. Some of the artwork, made from recycled materials and all usable, was inspired and every square inch of wall was covered in A3 sized prints and photographs from a variety of sources. Had to be seen to be believed ...Read more

    Deja view

    March 1, 2020 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    When the taxi took me into the dark streets behind the fishing port, I was a little concerned about the standard of the cheap hotel I had found on booking.com
    In fact it was a wonderfully decorated old building that could have been a 1970's hippy hangout in Holland.
    I went up to the rooftop in the evening and found this terrace. There was a counter but no bar which surprised me as they would have made a fortunefrom its location.
    On my way to bed I was waylaid by a charming young Polish couple who insisted I join them for some Bacardi. How could I refuse. She was a gospel singer earning her living selling photovoltaic panels in a tiny, unpronounceable town in Poland and her friend Simon worked in Gloucester for Amazon. It was his 33rd birthday and they had gone to the roof expecting to find company to help celebrate, instead they found me and we had a jolly chat about life and philosophy at the postgraduate level as only a litre of duty-free rum can invoke.

    Sansibar,Stone Town

    May 28, 2019 in Tanzania ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Bei strahlendem Sonnenschein-wie hätte es auch anders sein sollen- verlassen wir am Dienstag Mittag mit dem Dalla- Dalla- Bus Paje und fahren in die “Hauptstadt“ Sansibars: Stone Town.
    Vom Bus laufen wir dann zu unserem Hotel.
    Das Malindi Guest House ist ein Upcycling Guest House: hier gibt es Lampen aus Glasflaschen, Waschbecken aus Autoreifen und vieles mehr...
    Hier verbringen wir noch 4 Tage bevor es am 1. Juni nach Südafrika geht.
    Da es Basti seit Samstag nicht so gut geht (Durchfall uns Bauchkrämpfe) verbringen wie die meiste Zeit im Hotel. Dort lernen wir nette Leute kennen (Roland aus Südafrika und zwei Frauen aus Japan) mit denen wir uns auf der hoteleigenen Dachterasse unterhalten.
    Sonst entspannen wir, versuchen noch ein paar Dinge zu regeln, wie z.B. die Bewerbung für Japan (ohne eigenen Laptop nur sehr schwierig...), und schauen Serien bei Netflix.
    Stone Town an sich bietet jetzt auch nicht viel touristisches und für irgendwelche touristischen Touren wollten wir kein Geld ausgeben.
