In Zanzibar where the weather is balmy, beautiful and warm (sorry, ya'll, I don't miss the subzero temps).   Palm trees and the Indian Ocean are right on my doorstep today and I am looking forward to a bit of a holiday.  There's a big Indian influence here so last night's dinner was heavy on the Masala.  My travel mate just spent 5 months in the south of India working and she says the food we had last night was every bit as good as she had in India.  YUM.  We will spend today gettling lost here (it's my favorite thing to do in a new place) and hope to find a good plenty of surprises.  I think I'll also try and shop for more appropriate attire.  The island is predominantly Muslim and many of the women are fully covered.  I haven't been called a hussy yet today (sporting a tank top) but I'm not taking any chances.  Tomorrow afternoon we head off to the east coast of the island for the beach for three days in the town of Paje.  xoxo
