Stonetown, Spice and everything nice

Today was a transfer day to Stone town with a Spice tour en route. We saw all the spices like ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove that once made this place the major world spice exporter, but that they now mostly grow for tourists. We ate lots of delicious local fruit and bought ridiculously marked up tea and soap. We then headed into town for a tour of the historic part of town containing the remnants of the period of Arabic rule. Also the birthplace of Freddie Mercury.
