The bus left an hour late my seat was stuck in recline and I had no leg room. The journey however was not that bad. The problems began when we went to our first hotel of choice it was full so off we went to our second hotel of choice also full now getting very dark. Someone from the second hotel took pity on us and showed as to another guesthouse where the woman said there was no room. After some quick words in Swahili there was a room and the woman a little surly let us book in. The room was fine and the woman was in a much better mood the next day.
We were up early for no real reason so headed down to old town. This is full of colonial building from the Portguese to the British. We were that early most of the shops had not opened a blessing. However when we went to Fort Jesus a very persistent guide kept offering his services we declined firmly several times but he kept coming back. We eventually shook of the guide and went for a walk around the old town. Some very nice buildings and the backdrop of the sea was picturesque. We were finished before lunch time so made our way to the spice market. Smelled very nice but not many spices many more vegetables and a not so nice smelly meat market next door. Had lunch a place called the Little Chef dinner pub where we had a couple of drinks and some food. A nice place not what you would think hearing the name. Tomorrow we will be at the beach, I think Keeley will be happy.
