Smiles Of Zanzibar

Although technically a part of Tanzania, Zanzibar has a much different feel than the mainland. Here the pace is slower and the smiles of Zanzibar come easy – just take a look at a few of the happy people I met on my strolls around town:

  1. barbara,

    I totally agree with Chris, these shots are amazing! You have done a wonderful job and had the most amazing vacation. I too forget that we are friends when looking through these postings.

    Have a safe trip home.



  2. Have not said hello in a while..your trip looks terrific. I have been following on and off, and keeping well wishes in my mind for your safe passage.


    It is obvious by your age that retirement is premature…have you contacted National Geographic? I think you should get back to this vocation…I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of your photos…and ofter remind myself while looking…I know the person who took that picture! Hope the journey is everything.

    Best Regards,
