We went into Stonetown, a famous port of Zanzibar, where the slave trade once thrived. The church below is built over the slave auction block. We stood on the pulpit, where slaves once stood in chains to be sold. It was a very somber place to be.
I love Zanzibar architecture. They're very famous for their intricate wooden doors, like the one this lady is standing in front of. (Notice the bike helmet she's wearing - gotta love it!)

More Zanzibar architecture in Stonetown...
We meandered through the maze of narrow streets,
And spent time on the white sand beach.
I highly recommend Zanzibar for a vacation spot. It was a great mini-honeymoon in Africa. Now I'm looking forward to the real honeymoon in Europe this summer. More architecture and historical pictures to come...
