On our first night here, we picked up two friends Hanna had met in Swaziland (a country I never made it to). Sophia, from Equador, and Jordi, from Spain, have been travelling down through Africa in a big white transit van that now doubles as their home. We shared drinks round a dying campfire before bed.
The next day Jordi went fishing (didn't catch anything all day) while the two girls and I went to look round the island. This place has been an important part of the whole region’s history for centuries
On our third day here, I fell ill. I visited the toilet more times in 24 hours than I probably do in a normal month. Not agreeable. The next day I had recovered sufficiently to be driven by Jordi and Sophia to the town of Pemba.
