Where we spend our time

One of my favorite things to do is sit at an outdoor cafe, eating good food, with a refreshing drink, and watching people go by.

We have found just such a place in Zanzibar. The food is great (and verrrrry affordable for us because it is priced for locals.) The juice is freshly made. And the owners and workers are really good people. In the past 2+ weeks (they just expanded their menu about a month ago), since we got invited to try their food (the owners know the owners of our apartment), we have been at Ma Shaa Allah easily 25 times. Sometimes it is for coffee (for Angi) and juice, sometimes for the best Biryani on the island, sometimes for ice cream or a smoothie, and sometimes just because. We wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

In the picture, Angi is in “Her” seat…that is “Our” table. 🙂


First quick post about Nairobi

Non-human related: I got a kiss from an elephant, I gave a rhinoceros that used to hate me a massage, which he greatly enjoyed, and I ate some delicious filet Mignon.

Human-related: we are greatly enjoying our time with our friends, the Powers.

Photos (assuming I have any good ones and details about the massage will come soon.)


And this is how one makes chapati

After some yummy gelato (ginger and stracciatella for me) and an engaging walk on the beach (see Angi’s blog – linked in my Links page), we stopped and bought chapati from a woman making it on the sidewalk. She only had two made, so we got to see her make two more for us. The equivalent of 92 American cents for 4 fresh-made (in front of our eyes) chapati. And yes – they are delicious.
