FLYING TO ZANZIBAR
We packed up and headed to the local airport. It is truely a bush flying type of place with only prop planes. The pilot and only person besides us came and introduced himself as "Ali", and said the flight would take about 2 1/2 hours to to the Island of Zanzibar. The plane had 12 seats and one propellor. We flew at 11,500 ft and he managed to miss all the big thunder heads billowing up around Mt. Killamanjaro and the Serengeti. It was actaully very smooth, and he passed candy around out of a small plastic container. Ali looked about 25 years old, but he did a great job.
