We went out on this Dhow like sailing boats in Kiwengwa, Zanzibar and I could not avoid taking many pictures of the man working on the boat. Originally the Dhows were used to transport heavy goods like fruits, water and spices from India, Middle East and Africa. Now the Dhows in Zanzibar are used for fishing and to transport tourists.
