Seafront The seafront of Stone Town,
showing the fishing boats,
which go out at sunset.
Zanzibar Door Daladala
Many buildings in Stone Town have elaborately carved frames and panels, decorated with brass studs and heavy locks. The size of the door, and its decoration, were indicators of the family's wealth and status. I have read that traditionally, the doors were built first, then the building was built around it! The usual mode of transport on Zanzibar is the daladala
Zanzibar Chests A typical craft is the making of Zanzibar chests.
They come in many sizes, and can be bought in many places throughout Stone Town.
