Yesterday, just as I published my article “Why the name: Zanzibar?” the BBC published a photo-journal on “ Saving Zanzibar’s Heritage.” This made for a happy surprise, and showed the effort taken by locals to save and restore Stone Town (Mji Mkongwe in Swahili)’s architecture. So please check out the article on BBC HERE. Enjoy!

I saw the BBC photos yesterday. Great news for Stone Town and the re-invigoration of local skills and pride.
Yes… I saw it too… and I am always happy to see renovation work because this ancient history deserves to be taken care of, and passed down to other generations.
