In the middle of Zanzibar city lies a park in front of the building ” the house of wonders”  Bait al ajaib, before the revolution this was a residency for the Sultan, now its a museum. The park is a meeting place for business and social activities both day and night. In the evenings you can buy lots of small snacks grilled over char coal. The picture is more than 10 years old but the importance of the park remain.

    Great picture. It really captures the importance of physical and visual interaction with the waterfront in terms of enabling opportunities for conviviality in this space.
