“Cocoa-fringed shore of purest white, and the sea blue as a slab of lapis lazuli.”Sir Richard Burton
It was love at first sight. Zanzibar is breathtakingly beautiful. I agree, it is sweaty humid. The sun scorches your skin before you know it! Everyone wants to take you to Prison island. Yet, Zanzibar is painfully beautiful!
If I am to compare Zanzibar’s beauty with another comprehensive thing that a human mind can perceive, it has to be that of Cleopatra’s! Haunting is a way. Legendary too. And mystic. So much that you take a while after the initial bedazzling! There is beauty everywhere in Zanzibar, you just need to pick and concentrate on one part of the island!
