When you think of visiting an old historical UNESCO World Heritage Site located on a Tanzanian island, what comes to mind? I am pretty sure…Stone Town, Zanzibar!

It’s true, I tell you. That place, Kilwa, is what I would like to tell you about today.

22 Tanzania Instagram Photos & More

At the beginning of March, I turned a scary-for-me age. I could feel age creeping up on me. I had become one of those people who no longer understood why “young people” did the things they did. One thing I couldn’t understand, for instance, was why they spent so much time on Instagram. I mean: what’s so fun about looking at pictures posted by people you don’t even know?
