Good wifi is expensive on Zanzibar

hiltonNo regrets for a very expensive dinner at the Hilton DoubleTree, so I could use their fast wifi for photo and video transfer. It cost me 79,000 TSH, which is about four times the price of a low-end tourist dinner, and about sixteen times a village dinner. In euros it is only about 30€, though. Cost is more culturally bound in Africa than anywhere else I have been, including Southeast Asia.

The tide crept in during the night and splashed my laptop. I paid 30€ for getting seawater on my laptop.
