A few impressions from a recent trip to Zanzibar. An amazing island with stunning beauty and a dark history. Of course birds were not to be missed, but more on that later.

Stonetown, the capital of the island has doors as one of the characteristic features. They can be modern style or pieces af art
This one is a reminder of a past of whealth and cruelty: Tippu Tipp’s door, who’s wealth was build on trading slaves.
Zanzibar is an fascinating blend of cultures and religions. The angilican cathedral and it’s neighbor, one of the large mosques in Stonetown.
Another signum of Zanzibar: Spices!!!
