Our nine o'clock min-bus showed up at ten - when are we going to learn to arrange to wait in the room? Then when the bus did show up we had to drive around for thirty minutes looking for more passengers before returning to where we started! It was all delightfully African. In Stone Town we checked back in to the Bottoms Up Lodge. We were excited because our favorite room (the "penthouse") was available, but then they couldn't find the key so we ended up in the other top floor room.
Spent the afternoon shopping. I've been considering sending an antique clock home, but after checking with DHL decided I really didn't need one (a half kilogram was US $45!) We managed to get lost but off the tourist streets it's Friday afternoon - prayer time - so not much was open. Checked on ferry times for tomorrow afternoon - there's a 1:30 and 4:30 ferry. Sat at a cafe on the water for awhile, then went back to the hotel room for a rest.
We were starving, so ended up skipping the sunset at Africa House and going to the gardens for an early dinner. After dinner went by the internet cafe - after tomorrow there will probably be no access for quite a while (Malawi seems doubtful).
