Loving the architecture and design at every turn

Awake early again, before the call to prayer from the speakers near our window. Another great breakfast enjoying beautiful views over Stone Town.

Spent the morning walking through the maze of alleys looking for likely restaurants and trying to find the Hindu temple that can be seen from the hotel and looks like it is in the “next block” – no success. Back to the hotel to regroup and start our search again. Success and it was only 2 streets away but you had to know exactly where to go, we finally stumbled across it. Spoke with Hindu minister and his wife who both made us feel very welcome, allowed photos and we talked about India.

Lunch at Lazuli which was recommended by Emerson and afternoon spent walking the maze.

Pre-dinner drinks in bar on top of Hurumz, which was previously Emerson Green and is currently being re-acquired by Emerson. Dinner at The Abyssinian - an Ethiopian restaurant at the other end of Stone Town, 15 minutes walk away. The food was wonderful(chicken and lamb), eaten with our hands and bread base with a few beers. Thankfully we were treated to a hand wash and then traditional coffee ritual. All in all a great night.
