Arriving at Zanzibar after my fun plane ride, we found out that it is low season at the resort. Apparently we arrived during the rainy season so the island was grossly underpopulated of tourists. Excellent! And when I mean the rainy season, I mean that it rains everyday at 2pm for about 10 minutes. Perfect timing for a lunch break......
Here is the view from outside our room door. We looked out over the pool and across the way to where Julian stayed. Unfortunately, Julian booked a romantic week away for two with his girlfriend, only to break up with her 72 hours before the trip. He went anyway.. and got upgraded to the honeymoon suite. Yikes! Needless to say, we made his room the base of operations since it was large and had a private deck. More on that below.

Some of the difficult decisions I had to make while I was there was whether to drink Kilimanjaro or Safari beer.
Lastly, I'm contemplating my surroundings while wearing my new native hat. BTW - this is the first time I've worn shorts for leisure in about two years. Yeah to warmth!!!!
