There's been so much hype about #Zanzibar, but at the same time, a few people weren't particularly thrilled. Had to go find out for myself ,so some friends and I planned a trip. What I think? Top rating for beaches, good food, so much to see, history. Read this thread... #Travel
From #DaresSalaam, you have the options of flying or going by ferry to #Zanzibar. On the other hand, you could fly directly there. We spent a few days in Dar, then we went by ferry...it cost $35 per person for economy and $50 per person for VIP. We travelled in the VIP section.
It takes 1hr30mins to get to Zanzibar by ferry. It could take longer when it's turbulent. The hotel we stayed in was an hour away from stone town. We stayed in Nungwi which is North of Zanzibar. #Travel #Africa #Tanzania #holidays

Today is #ChilembweDay in #Malawi, a day to honor one of the country's celebrated heroes.

John Chilembwe was a Baptist preacher who led a rebellion against colonial rule.
Chilembwe was "trained in an American Negro Baptist seminary", writes George Shepperson. jstor.org/stable/pdf/272… (See also his book w/Thomas Price on Chilembwe: amazon.com/Independent-Af… )
During his time in the US, Chilembwe "imbibed the ideological ferment of African-American intellectual circles, and learned about John Brown and other abolitionists and emancipators," wrote political scientist Robert Rotberg mail.harvardmagazine.com/2005/03/john-c…

OK, now we get onto what I wanted to do for y'all this late evening.
Namely, hoodoos! If you do, hoodoo.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoodoo_(g…
a.k.a. tent rock, fairy chimney or earth pyramid. All these photos are mine or with my camera by someone else, 2013, remote area of #Tanzania.
No hoodoo, but in which you see me, following the local guide, to go see hoodoos. Remote area of #Tanzania, 2013. I was the only foreigner there. A couple of Tanzanian tourists too, but srsly infrequented.
This is a very well-camouflaged praying-mantis I found along the way. The area is semi-arid to quite arid, so its coloration is very well-done.
