Stone Town, Zanzibar

Stone Town, Zanzibar



I accepted photo challenge from Nina to combine two challenges into one. Nina, Indonesian woman expat who has been living in several countries (lately she’s living in England) and traveling to many countries around the globe. I did follow her blog since couple of years ago and amazed with her photography works, especially with her architecture photography. You can check her blog here.

The rules of the 5 days challenge are:

1. On 5 consecutive days. create a post using either a pas or recent photo in B&W only for Black and White Challenge OR in color for Five photos – Five stories challenge.

2. Each day invite another blogger friend to join in the fun.

Stone Town

Stone Town, is the capital,old city and cultural heart of Zanzibar. Located on Indian Ocean, Zanzibar is part of Republic of Tanzania, one of countries in East Africa. Culture in Zanzibar is influenced by Indian, Arabs that make it a bit different with Tanzanian culture in the mainland.

Stone Town is a place for winding alleys, bazars, mosques and grand Arab houses with beautiful carved wooden door. Most of houses in Stone Town built in 19th century using coraline rock of zanzibar. Its narrow labyrinth  street is similar to Medina of Morocco where I spent many iddle hours to facinate and wander around.

  1. (Sebelumnya minta maaf kalau komentarnya dalam bahasa Indonesia soalnya saya takut salah, Mbak :hehe).
    Hm, Zanzibar seingat saya terkenal dengan hasil tumbuhannya, kalau tidak salah salah satu rempah, cuma apa ya? Eh, atau teh?
    Foto ini menggambarkan satu gang bernilai sejarah yang agak terbengkalai, cuma jadi indah banget. Punya cita rasanya tersendiri. Keren!

    • No need to appologize, Gara. Kita semua masih belajar, jadi jangan takut salah :-D.. Benar, terkenal dengan rempahnya. Yang paling terkenal cengkeh dan juga kayu manis. Hampir semua gang bentuknya seperti ini. Salah satu gang adalah tempat lahir Freddy Mercury, sang vocalist Queen yang terkenal. Tapi, aku ngga sempat motret rumahnya. Cuma lewat saja.
