    Bond Street Shops: Bargaining's a Must

    by easterntrekker Written Oct 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bond Street Shops
    There is a narrow and winding lane that leads up from the beach with shops on both sides. Each shop carried many of the same things, wood carvings, beads, cotton wraps and paintings. We really liked the paintings. We watched one artist at work on about 10 paintings at once . First sky then sunsets, etc.They are colorful however and not expensive. We thought they were on canvas but closer examination revealed they are actually on cotton. Some are quite lovely and we ended up buying four animals designs for our grandchildren. They roll well and are easy to carry. I also bought some lovely malagite beads and earrings. Legend says if malagite is worn regularly it will improve mental alertness. Humm not bad for $10.00

    The Liquor Store: Busiest Shop in Town

    by easterntrekker Written Oct 15, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As it is Ramadan , the holiest season for Muslims we were surprised that many of the shops and restaurants are open. Prices are less here than in Arusha. 1.5 liters of water is less than a dollar. 500ml of local beer costs about $1.50. That’s at the local liquor store. The liquor store is a small shop that for most of the day is locked ( due to Ramadan) . No fears however, all you have to do is knock and the door is opened. Lots of cold beer and wine and whatever else you would want. Its all crammed into a 10x10 foot room.
