We are enjoying the Sauti za Busara Music Festival. It is a 4 day music festival with bands from all around Africa. Before the first day of performances, there was a brief parade through town.
Angi and I knew the parade was happening, and once we heard it start, we scurried across town (a ten minute walk) to find where we thought it would be. There was no map of the parade route, so we used our skills of deduction.
We found it!
Here we sit in a fort in Zanzibar listening to a woman from the Seychelles (who currently lives in Australia) sing All Night Long by Lionel Richie in French.
A few weeks ago I did family portraits for some of our friends. We went to Forodhani Gardens for the photo shoot as the sun was starting to set. The Garden was filled with people, and when people saw some white guy taking serious photos (telling people where to sit and stand, ordering the family around, kneeling down, etc.) the chattering began. People wondered who the white guy with the camera was, and why this family was special…
