Zanzibar

Jambo Sana
And welcome to Zanzibar

A group of islands in East Africa
That belong to the nation of Tanzania

1.3 million people
Live on land that’s far from equal

But that’s nothing new
So enjoy your travels and view

You will find plenty of beautiful beaches
Many will leave you speechless

The sporty youth is always in motion
Running and playing by the Indian Ocean

The water is so turquoise
You won’t believe your eyes

Watch out you don’t burn your skin
Although it’ll make the locals grin

The roads are busy and bumpy
And aren’t fixed because of… well money

99% of inhabitants are muslim
The remainder is indigenous and Christian

Other nations used to control the entire village
Namely the Portuguese, Omani & British

It’s quite a peaceful place
There’s no gold, oil or diamond to chase

Only cloves & other spices
And of course fresh papaya slices

To some Zanzibar is everyday reality
To me it reveals a lot about humanity

Brought up amongst contrasting cultural worlds I seek to continuously understand more about the troubling yet beuatiful existnece of human life in this bizzare and mezmerizing universe of ours. 😀
