  • There are so many things about Zanzibar that really surprised us. This impeccable beach is actually NOT one of them. I had seen photos and heard about Zanzibar's white sand beaches. Beautiful, but old news.
.
So what exactly did we find so surprising?.
.
🌍 For one, plastic bags are illegal in Zanzibar. There are still many places in the United States that still allow single use plastics and Zanzibar has implemented this ban since 2006! 👏.
.
🕜 Secondly, Swahili Time! Swahili speakers regard the beginning of the day to be when the sunrises, roughly 6am. So everything is pushed back 6 hours. So for example, if you want to meet for breakfast at 9am, you'll say you'll meet at 3:00 in the morning. It's confusing and I'm still getting used to it! We almost missed our bus because we weren't sure if people are referring to Swahili time or non-Swahili time. Oops!.
