A second submission to this week’s photo challenge: Anticipation
Two years ago we were lucky enough to visit Zanzibar just before Christmas – an island of the coast of Tanzania which is a dream destination for many but right on our doorstop it’s an affordable destination.
This Christmas we are spending the holiday period back on Zanzibar and very much anticipating our return to this Island Paradise.

A submission to this week’s photo challenge :Anticipation
It’s that time of year when Christmas is approaching fast. Advent is the four weeks leading up to Christmas and each year as part of the anticipation of this most important event we put up decorations in early December. Even though the glitz and glamour could be said to overwhelm the true meaning of the season- it is nonetheless a great way to signal that this important event is on it’s way.
Living here in Tanzania, a long way from family it is a touch stone to the life we lived before we came here, even if the equatorial heat makes Christmas a bit different to a British Christmas.
So for this submission the focus is Christmas.
A year ago we were anticipating and then welcoming our mums to Tanzania.
This year with no family visits and with our son back in the UK at University we’re doing something a bit different for which you will need to read the next submission.
Happy Christmas to all who read this post.
