Just got back after spending the weekend on the island of Zanzibar. A simply beautiful experience. We spent the first day/night in Stonetown, walking around the winding streets and narrow alleyways, senses overwhelmed by the smells of various spices and oils. The water was a bright blue and the beaches a beautiful white. A wonderful vacation after a week of 6-hour workshops and no showers. We spend the next 2 nights at a beach called Kendwa Rocks where we just barely missed the Full Moon Party. Highlights: sinking my toes into the wet beach sand, finding tiny pink plumeria flowers scattered on the beds, getting my first henna tattoo outside of the House of Wonders, having a conversation (although one-sided) with a crab, and sitting underneath the big black sky and staring at the moon and stars for hours.
Big skies help me breathe.
