Situated about 25 miles off the Tanzanian coast, Zanzibar, with its sultans and spices, merchants and mosques, dhows and doorways of richly carved timber, has captured the imagination of travelers and writers for hundreds of years. It has long evoked a romantic mystique, calling up images of an island paradise in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Its gleaming Muslim Swahili town, built of white coralline limestone, can trace approximately 1,000 years of maritime trading, and it also sustained a plantation economy based principally on slaves and cloves. Stone Town is one of the few historic trading cities from the Swahili civilization that remains a viable urban center to this day. For much of the last millennium, Zanzibar served as the center of maritime interaction and trade between Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and India, and the architectural and urban heritage of the island reflects the complex fusion of these cultural spheres. By tracing the changes seen in the archaeological record, it is possible to identify the transformations that occurred in the landscape, people, and architecture of Zanzibar. The earliest known people to call Zanzibar home, the Swahili, built their iconic coral rag houses on the strategically important Shangani Peninsula. It was therefore a populated island that European traders discovered during the Age of Exploration. The main settlement in Zanzibar was Mji Mkongwe (´´old town” in Swahili), better known as Stone Town. It is today but one part of the modern Zanzibar City, but it is a site that has gone through many fascinating stages of development in history. Starting as a small and nondescript fishing village, the settlement became a royal residence and commercial bazaar through a complicated network of ethnic and cultural relations. The Portuguese were especially prominent in their activities in Stone Town, though their influence declined at the close of the 17th century, when the sultans of Oman emerged as the 1.

In the plucky, hilarious, and irreverent spirit of Lansky´s popular ´´Vagabond´´ newspaper column comes Last Trout in Venice, a book of adventurous and wacky travel essays that will have you laughing out loud. In Naples, Italy, Lansky rents a car precisely because of the city´s reputation as one of the worst places to drive in the world. In Berlin he dons a full-body latex suit, preparing for his visit to the notorious erotic KitKatClub. Inspired by Hemingway, he travels to Africa, where he accidentally stumbles upon a foolproof diet - the ´´Deep Sea Fishing off Kenya´s Coast During Rainy Season Weight Loss System´´. And in Venice you´ll hear Lansky as he dries out in the sun after his fall into the Grand Canal (in which he inadvertently took a big drink of water) while taking gondola-driving lessons. 1.

The charming real-life fairy tale of an American secretary who discovers she has been chosen king of an impoverished fishing village on the west coast of Africa. King Peggy has the sweetness and quirkiness of The No. 1 Ladies´ Detective Agency series and the hopeful sense of possibility of Half the Sky. King Peggy chronicles the astonishing journey of an American secretary who suddenly finds herself king to a town of 7,000 souls on Ghana´s central coast, half a world away. Upon arriving for her crowning ceremony in beautiful Otuam, she discovers the dire reality: there´s no running water, no doctor, and no high school, and many of the village elders are stealing the town´s funds. To make matters worse, her uncle (the late king) sits in a morgue awaiting a proper funeral in the royal palace, which is in ruins. The longer she waits to bury him, the more she risks incurring the wrath of her ancestors. Peggy´s first two years as king of Otuam unfold in a way that is stranger than fiction. In the end, a deeply traditional African town has been uplifted by the ambitions of its headstrong, decidedly modern female king. And in changing Otuam, Peggy is herself transformed, from an ordinary secretary to the heart and hope of her community. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Karen Thomas.
