Day 10: On the Road in Stone Town

IMG_2618

Our last day on the road, we stopped in Stone town, a once sleepy beach town turned into a major port city for East Africa. Goods flow through here from Asia and the Middle East before traveling off to other cities. This port city also has a sordid history.  Hundreds of years ago, this was hub of the slave market where traders came from all over the world to trade in human flesh.

All of that is long gone, and now as you walk around the city, all you’ll notice is the intricate wood carved doors. Zanzibar is known for their beautifully elaborate woodwork designs.
