A huge bewildering confusing maze of filthy beyond comparelanes with hundreds of zooming motorcycles mixed with pedestrains shuffling ankle deep in trash, garbage and debris thrown down from the last 100 years of occupation. Nothing is picked up...everything is discarded on the spot!
Flies, rotting fruit, smoke, traffic, fish markets, vegetable tables, filthy citizens, snotty- nosed children, shifty eyed hanger on's all comprise the Stone Town scene. Just another African town which are mostly open air septic tanks, but with a stunning view of the Indian Ocean. Don't buy anything, just take photos. The Curio Shop is a huge building of cheap Indian exports of everything from yesteryear without prices so that the haggleing can begin.
Stone Town is wonderful!!!!!!!
