I gave up on sunbathing several years ago, but I’m still all for a beach vacation. In Paje, a sleepy grouping of mini-resorts on the east side of Zanzibar, we’ve been having fun in the sun, thirties-style. And by that I mean, rather than soaking up the rays like we did in our twenties, Andy and I now hide under umbrellas, hats, and strong SPF. I’ve read a stack of New Yorkers, have strolled up and down the beach, and saw colorful fish and coral while snorkeling today.
Sadly, it’s our last day in paradise. Tomorrow we’re ferrying back to Dar Es Salaam for a final site visit then boarding planes back to the States. It’s been an amazing trip but I personally am excited to get back to Portland, to life, and to work.
Lest you think I’m too homesick, here are some pics from this island paradise:
