Zanzibar: Stone Town and Spice Tour


Typical narrow street in Stone Town, Zanzibar's main town.

Going on a tour around the island.

Zanzibar is famous for its many spices. Here's a cocoa "fruit". (The little brown spots are used.)

Suleyman - our guide for the day - is showing us a black pepper plant.

So - this is how cardamom grows! We also saw ginger, cinnamon, cloves, anise, nutmeg, vanilla, turmeric and lemon grass.

The little kids we met in the villages were having fun with us tourists.
