spring break

i’m on vacation in zanzibar, soaking up the sun and enjoying the view. except it’s rainy season, so sometimes there isn’t any sun and everyone gets drenched in a down-pour. but it’s a price i’m willing to pay for skipping the crowds and the heat of high season. i’m doing a lot of nothing – reading, swimming, sun-bathing, thinking, writing, staring out at the ocean. it’s paradise interspersed with the odd rainstorm, the odd beach-bum (sister do you want a massage today? snorkelling? masai necklace? maybe later?), the odd snipet of conversation from other tourists (laurie have you seen my ipod? pass the sunscreen? guys, they’ve run out of vodka at the bar). mom and dad left on sunday, sara went back to rwanda monday morning. i’m hanging with a couple of volunteer friends from rwanda for a few days, then i’ll be on my own for a few more. oh, and then i’ll turn 28. my second birthday in africa.
